Mask & Wig ClubhouseOriginally a church, stable, and carriage house, this clubhouse turned into the official home of the nation’s oldest all-male musical comedy troupe in 1894. Started by a small group of Penn State students, the Mask & Wig Club designated the building—built by Italian architect Wilson Eyre and decorated with early art by Philly-born Maxfield Parrish—as their theater. The Clubhouse continues to accommodate the musical group today, performing free shows and annual productions that still bring in a crowd. Other than housing its singing members (and audience), the Clubhouse is available for social events, business meetings, and, of course, theatrical productions.
