About

Masquerade

 by Ludvig Holberg
adapted and directed by Preston Lane

June 5 – 26, 2011

Love's in disguise.
The hot new place to party is a masquerade where the young and hip go wild. Two fathers arrange the marriage of their children, but when the kids fall in love behind masks with someone they think they've never met, everything that can go wrong is almost certain to get even worse. Add in a mother who just wants to dance, faithful servants determined to protect young love and enough disguises to make your head spin. You'll laugh your mask off!

Masquerade - a Feast for Eyes & Ears at Triad Stage
Classical Voice of North Carolina
June 11, 2011

If you miss Masquerade, Triad Stage's 10th season finale, you will miss what is surely one of the most riotous and ribald productions in this theatre company's history.
