You’ve probably never seen Mask and Wig from these angles


Yesterday Scott Spitzer from the Office of University Communications created a FANTASTIC video stitching together the photos he took of this year’s Mask and Wig club show, “A Volcanic Corruption: Sun Intended”, from its beginning rehearsals at the historic downtown clubhouse to its show debut last weekend.

After the jump, watch the video and listen to the great audio track filled with lots of traditional songs, rituals and some numbers from this year’s show.

I particularly love the angle of the picture taken at minute 1:28. Having been a Mask and Wig undergrad myself, this sort of picture would be great to have for every show. If the clubhouse walls could talk!

This year’s show is about three dysfunctional siblings stranded on an island:

>”Go tribal with Mask and Wig in its 123rd annual production, “A Volcanic Corruption,” as we take you on an epic journey deep into the heart of darkness. After embarking on an ambitious hot air balloon journey to the sun, three dysfunctional siblings find themselves lost in deflation when a freak accident lands them on a tropical island. What started as an inconvenient detour soon turns treacherous, and with paradise lost, our heroes are forced into a struggle for life, limb, and gender identity. They must overcome ravenous tribesmen, an explosive volcano, and their own lust for power if they ever hope to see their overpriced cappuccinos again. Will they evade the wrath of the natives’ god? Will they find lava in all the wrong places? Can they stop themselves from careening down a fatal road to El Dorado? Put your conch shells on vibrate and join Mask and Wig as we discover that, no matter how far away it seems, the sun is just a state of mind.”

The show opened on Jan. 28 and will run every weekend through April 8, when the troupe takes the production on the road to New York City, Pittsburgh, Chicago and Detroit.
