Midshipmen from the Naval Academy’s drama group, The Masqueraders, will perform “The Infinite Wrench- USNA Style,” Nov. 10 – 11 and Nov. 17 – 18 at 8 p.m., in Mahan Hall at the Naval Academy.

Performances are open to the public. Tickets are on sale now for $13 and can be purchased by calling 410-293-TIXS (8497), or online at http://navyperforms.showare.com/.

The Masqueraders are teaming-up with the Neo-Futurists, a Chicago-based professional theatre ensemble, to produce “The Infinite Wrench,” a series of two-minute plays unleashed interactively over the course of an hour in front of a live audience. The Masqueraders will honor Veterans Day by including stories of those who have served from the USNA community in their two-minute plays. This year’s performance is directed by Dr. Megan Geigner.

The Masqueraders were officially founded in 1907 and is the oldest extracurricular activity at the Naval Academy. Each fall the Masqueraders produce one main-stage show, which is selected to support the curriculum of the academy’s English department. The group also performs a series of student-directed, one-act plays every spring.

Past fall performances have included “Translations,” “The Importance of Being Earnest,” “Macbeth,” and “Much Ado about Nothing.” Their most recent plays have received 5-Star ratings from professional theater reviewers across the DC and Baltimore regions. 

 

Visitors may park at the Navy Marine Corps stadium for $5 (pricing may change for event days) and get a free shuttle to the performance. On Nov. 11, the shuttle will operate to and from the NSA Annapolis Naval Exchange (NEX) parking lot, instead of the Navy Marine Corps stadium. The shuttle runs an hour before and an hour after each show. The Naval Academy recommends pedestrians attending the performances walk through Gate 3 (Maryland Ave.). Visitors may also walk through Gate 1 (King George St.). All visitors 18 years-of-age and older are required to show valid, government-issued picture ID. Vehicles without a Department of Defense driver or passenger are not permitted to drive onto academy grounds. Handicapped visitors with proper decals are permitted through Gate 1 after a vehicle inspection. All bags are subject to search.
