Who we are

Who We Are – Emerald Masks Productions is a new theater company based in Stroudsburg, PA. (E.M.P.) was formed to provide our communities with professional-quality theater at an affordable cost, to nurture and support theater artists, and to cultivate an appreciation of theater in future generations.

Great Theatre is about challenging how we think and encouraging us to fantasize about a world we aspire to.

– Willem Dafoe

Emerald Masks was created to inspire and cultivate the arts in the North Eastern Pennsylvania area. We hope to entertain, inspire and give equal opportunity to all artists, while also preparing those serious about the business with necessary tools to a rewarding career in theater arts. The name “Emerald” is based on the great Emerald City from The Hit classic “The Wizard of Oz”. Dorothy’s dream finds her in this new world that is filled with endless hopes, dreams and friends that she can relate to. She then awakes only to find that It was a reflection of her reality and she has the power to make change not only within herself but on those she loves and even the world. Art enables us to find ourselves & lose ourselves at the same time. We hope to see you at an Emerald Mask Production.
