A great Northeastern tradition now in its 81st year, Silver Masque is the student-sponsored branch of the Department of Theatre. Self-governed by Northeastern students, the Masque regularly presents performances and workshops outside of the traditional classroom setting. It is open to all student theatre-lovers who are imaginative, entrepreneurial, and independent.
Silver Masque invites students to push beyond their self-imposed boundaries and provides a supportive, open, creative environment where they can present personal, experimental, and emerging work to one another. New plays, comic sketches, improv, drag, scenes, songs, monologues, dances. Take off your masque and reveal your artistic self.
