The Masquers Playhouse has been the home to The Masquers performing group since 1960 and is a San Francisco Bay Area landmark. The non-profit Masquers have been in constant operation since 1955. The playhouse is located in the Point Richmond neighborhood of the East Bay city of Richmond. Various plays and musicals are performed with local actors.

The theatre has been presented with honors and recognition from various members of Congress, state legislature, and other politicians. [1]

In early March, 2016 the theatre temporarily shut down due to structural problems and will remain shut down for a number of months. The Masquers continue to stage performances in various nearby venues in the meantime.
