Letter from the Directors

Families, Community Members, and Supporters of the Arts,

Humans, Humanoids, and All,

Welcome to the show! We are thrilled to be closing this year’s Masquers productions with Trap, a show that has pushed us in more ways than one. We are so impressed by the commitment, passion, and talent these Masquers have demonstrated throughout our process. In a short period of time, they have been able to put together a complex and innovative theatrical experience in a genre that is brand new to many of us. Now, horror and mystery is part of their repertoire as actors, and soon… your repertoire as an audience.

We must acknowledge the hard work and dedication of our amazing cast and crew. Once decisions were made, from start to finish, the entire process was approximately four weeks (and one of those weeks was spring break!). This devoted and talented group of students did not even bat an eye.

To our numerous 8th graders, break a leg in this final middle school performance. We wish you all the best at the high school!

To all of you who continually support the arts at North Shore, thank you. Those five or six o’clock pick ups and rearranging of schedules do not go unnoticed.

We appreciate you.

Unnerving, exhilarating, and wildly inventive, you’ve never walked into anything quite like Trap.

We hope you enjoy the show!

Noel Beccarino, Damien Chillemi, Diane Vestuto
