The director of our first show this season, Mamma Mia! has been announced.
The board of directors of The Masquers during its August meeting chose Erin LaFond as the director of this smash hit musical.
Erin is no stranger to the stage having been seen on stage as well as back stage for many local productions. The last time she was named director for one of our shows was in 2010 with the Masquers production of Spiders Web.
We are looking forward to Erin's leadership and vision for this show. It is certain to be one of the highlights of the season!
We will be sharing candid photos and videos as the process unfolds!
