The Masquers Celebrates 84 Seasons

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 25 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 for the last 84 years. Our latest offering includes Leading Ladies, The Miracle Worker and The Addams Family.

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 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 25 years.

It's Scholarship Time

If you are a student of the arts you will be interested in learning more about our annual scholarship award.  Named in honor of Bill & Helen Plumb, long-time members of The Masquers, the award name was recently amended to include Lenora Sheahan who chaired the Scholarship Committee for many years.

The scholarship program is open to all students who are pursuing a Graduate or Undergraduate degree in the Performing Arts.  Past recipients of a scholarship are encouraged to apply again.

Over the years The Masquers has awarded scholarships to people who have excelled in the Arts.  The most notable is Garth Neustadter who, in 2011, became one of the youngest composerts to receive a Primetime Emmy Award for his score for the PBS 'American Masters' documentary, "John Muir in the New World."

Wow What A Show!

83rd SeasonThe first show of our 84th Season opened with a bang, or should we say a chuckle, giggle, guffaw, snort - OK, it was a really funny show!

First-time director Jonathan Medendorp assembled a great team to present this hilarious season opener to the appreciative audiences. The cast was simply fantastic and kept the audiences laughing all the way home.

The crew worked together seamlessly and prepared the costumes, make-up, hair, stage and set to perfection. Speaking of the set, there were many comments from those who saw the show regarding the its beauty. It really did look like the biggest house in York, PA.
