The Masquers Celebrates Another Year of Operation

Beginning in 1987 we became one of the charter Arts Partners for the newly renovated Capitol Civic Centre in downtown Manitowoc and have called this beautiful theatre our home performance venue for over 30 years.

The Masquers, Inc. has been a leader in the Manitowoc arts community since 1931. A non-profit organization, we lay claim to the title of one of Wisconsin's Oldest Community Theater Groups. Throughout our history we have produced at least two shows every season, and our 90th year was no exception. Though we didn't performed at our traditional home, the Capitol Civic Centre, we did manage to produce two shows at alternate venues. Our 92nd season marks the second year since our return to "The Masquers Stage" at the CCC and promises to one of the most entertaining seasons yet.

In 1944 The Masquers purchased the original coach house for the Rahr Mansion, now the Rahr-West Museum. The Coach House has been our home for auditions, rehearsals, costumes, set pieces and club meetings ever since. Beginning in 1987 we became one of the charter Arts Partners for the newly renovated Capitol Civic Centre in downtown Manitowoc and have called this beautiful theatre our home performance venue for over 30 years.

Scholarship Applications Are Available

The Masquers is accepting applications for the annual Bill & Hellen Plumb, Lenora Sheahan Memorial Scholarship Program. Each year the Scholarship Committee reviews applications for this award and chooses a worthy recipient. The goal of this scholarship award is to help students who are pursuing an UNDERGRADUATE or GRADUATE degree in the Performing Arts.

Originally named for Bill and Helen Plumb, two people who were very influential Masquers members for many years, the award was expanded to memorialize Lenora Sheahan, one of our members who was very active in our scholarship program. It's fitting that this award keeps the memory of three of our most youth oriented and prominent members in the Masquers history.

There have been many recipients over the years despite the 2-year hiatus brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. Last year signaled a return to normalcy with the awarding of scholarships to two deserving high school graduates.

Bill & Hellen Plumb, Lenora Sheahan Memorial Scholarship is open to graduating high school seniors as well as current college students. To access an application with more information about the award please click the link below.

Announcing our 92nd Anniversary Season

Beginning in November the Masquers will be returning to the Capitol Civic Centre with a full slate of shows marking our 92nd year of continuous operation.

Coming this season is a return of one of our favorite holiday classics, A Christmas Story. Join Ralphie, Randy, Mother, and "the Old Man" for an enjoyable trip back to a Christmas long ago.

Our second offering of the year will be the comedy Over the River and Through the Woods. Nick spends every Sunday visiting his grandparents, but he has some bad news for them. Their reaction to the news and never-say-die attitude leads to some hilarious moments. You won't want to miss this one.

Finally, we end our season with the Tony Award winning musical City of Angels. An engaging story and captivating music will make this a night to remember.
