Silver Masque is the oldest student organization on Northeastern University’s campus. Originally founded in 1934 as ‘the Dramatic Club,’ it was renamed ‘Silver Masque’ by Professor Eugene Blackman in 1949.


Silver Masque is open to all students on campus and provides opportunities to work creatively on theatre projects outside of the classroom setting.  Every three weeks the group performs a cabaret show that includes original works directed, acted, and designed entirely by students.

Silver Masque’s goal is to support those who are interested in exploring and expanding their skills in the theatre arts in any way possible. The group is committed to fostering a safe, supportive, and creative environment where students can collaborate in a workshop environment and produce original work.
