The Envision program produces innovative theater on a shoestring budget during breaks between main season productions. Since 1995, Envision’s presentations have complemented and enriched the Masquers’ season, while mentoring aspiring directors and offering opportunities to create and perform on a shortened schedule.

Next up for Envision:

Charlotte’s Web
by Joseph Robinette
Directed by Virginia Capps Buckner

October 2-4 & 9-11
Friday at 8pm, Saturday at 7pm, Sunday at 2pm

A beautiful tale for the whole family about the love between a pig and the arachnid protectress who teaches him about the cycle of life. Based on the classic by E.B. White.
