The Mask and Wig Club
Founded in 1888 by a small group of aspiring actors at the University of Pennsylvania, The Mask and Wig Club is a venerable institution dedicated to theatrical comedy. The group founded its headquarters in a former stable in 1894, hiring prominent Philadelphia architect Wilson Eyre to convert the historic property, and bringing in Maxfield Parrish to decorate the theater.
Today, the club continues to perform in this magnificent venue, and remains dedicated to preserving its historically significant interior. That’s why the group hired Clear Sound to update the theater’s sound system. Knowing our reputation for sensitive installations in historic properties, The Mask and Wig Club tasked our designers with mounting loudspeakers in a way that would not obscure the beautiful artwork on the proscenium arch. Clear Sound chose inconspicuous white speakers that could be painted to match the historic palette of the auditorium and would provide outstanding performance from a side position. Today, the theater retains its historic charm, while enjoying cutting edge sound quality during all types of theatrical productions.

Intimate, natural-sounding dialogue in a sold-out theater. Crisp, intelligible announcements in a packed stadium. Exhilarating lights and music at an outdoor summer festival. A stirring sermon reaching every corner of a cavernous church.
Sounds like the work of Clear Sound - the Delaware Valley's best full-service audio, video and lighting company.
