About Masquers Playhouse

ABOUT MASQUERS

MASQUERS PLAYHOUSE is a community theater in Point Richmond, California, on the East shore of San Francisco Bay. We are a nonprofit corporation, and have been producing plays and musicals of the highest caliber for more than 60 years.

 

To read about the people and productions in our first half-century of entertainment, go to our History Page. See the Production History section below.

 

Every year we have a main season of five productions, two of which are musicals. Our productions run for five weeks, with performances on Friday and Saturday evenings, and some Sunday matinees. Tickets may be purchased online as well as by phone. Go to our Ticket Information page for details!

 

Additionally, the Masquers runs several education and development programs. Stage One is our children’s program, where young people can learn the craft of making theater. Our Envision program produces short-run pieces that, for one reason or another, cannot be a part of our regular season.

 

The theatre can be reached by phone at (510) 232-3888. Send email to info@masquers.org.
