A great Northeastern tradition now in its 85th year, Silver Masque is the oldest theatrical organization on campus. Self-governed by Northeastern students, Silver Masque focuses on the promotion and production of original works and performances. It is open to all student theatre-lovers who are imaginative, entrepreneurial, and independent.
Silver Masque offer numerous opportunities for artistic endeavors, most notably during Fortnight, a cabaret style performance full of songs, skits, standup, improv, and more! Fortnight ends with a student written, directed, designed, and performed ten minute play. All Fortnight performances take place at 11pm in the Ryder Theatre Lab, 334 Ryder. The first fortnight of Fall 2019 is expected to be held on September 19th.
