Contribute to the Masquers
Ticket sales only provide about 50% of our costs, so in order for us to continue providing first-class entertainment, we need the support of local businesses and individuals.
There are many ways you can help Masquers Playhouse. Monetary donations are always gratefully accepted from either individuals or businesses. As we are a non-profit organization, all donations of this type are tax-deductible. Just click on the Donate links on this page.
We also set aside several Thursday nights for benefits that your group or organization can reserve for your own private fundraiser. If you are interested in this, please call our theater at 510-232-3888 and leave a message. You can also support us through our annual garage sale, or by purchasing Season Tickets. You can even donate a vehicle to benefit the Masquers!
Our building is almost 100 years old. It needs substantial retrofitting (seismic and “other”). Yes, we have an “Impossible Dream.” In 1998, the Dean & Margaret Lesher Foundation provided $25,000 for us to develop the ideal theater footprint and architectural plans. They envisioned expanded premises (lobby, restrooms, stage, flyloft, etc. including conformity with ADA requirements). But the cost—in the millions—exceeds our ability to raise funds by the means we have in the past. We seek private, corporate and foundation sponsors interested in supporting a community theater with outstanding artistic talent, impeccable financial management, over 50 years of continuity, and strong community support.
