Belfast Maskers  Auditions for
Dearly Departed

A comedy written by David Bottrell & Jessie Jones

Saturday July 27 at 10:00 AM &
Sunday July 28 at 2:00 PM

at The Basil Burwell Community Theater, 17 Court St, Belfast

Dearly Departed takes place in the Baptist backwoods of the Bible Belt. The beleaguered Turpin family proves that living and dying in the South are seldom tidy and always hilarious. Not since Steel Magnolias has a more colorful and dysfunctional group of Southern eccentrics gathered below the Mason-Dixon line. When the patriarch of the Turpin family keels over dead in the first scene, the struggle to get him buried involves the whole clan, including the not-so-grieving widow who wants to put “Mean and Surly” on the tombstone. “Dearly Departed is drop dead funny.”-NY Daily News.
There are roles for 4 men and 6 women, ages 20-80. Performances will be held October 4, 5 6, 11, 12, & 13. Dearly Departed will be directed by newly appointed Artistic Director, Meg Nickerson. Please contact Meg for more information at:

Exciting news!

June 13, 2019 — Meg Nickerson Named New Artistic Director for The Belfast Maskers

The Belfast Maskers are pleased to announce the appointment of Meg Nickerson as their new Artistic Director.

Meg studied and graduated from The University of Maine at Portland/Gorham in 1978. Shortly after moving to Belfast in 1982, Meg began looking for theater companies to work with. At that time, Belfast had no organized theater. Since Musical Theater was her first love, she began working with The Camden Civic Theater as an actor, director and member of the board of directors. In 1991, hearing of her education and experience, Meg was contacted by Diane Coller-Wilson and Basil Burwell to see if she might be willing to fill a last-minute role opening in “Antigone of the Andes” with the newly formed Belfast Maskers. Since that time, Meg has been actively involved in the theater community of Belfast. She has directed, acted, and held various tech roles for The Belfast Maskers (including serving on the board of directors), Northport Music Theater, Midcoast Actors’ Studio, and served as the stage director of Belfast Area High School for fourteen years.

“I am thrilled to be part of the revitalized Belfast Maskers,” Nickerson says. “In the early days of the Maskers company, I was fortunate enough to work with and learn from four amazing, talented Artistic Directors. It is my goal to connect the history of The Belfast Maskers with the development of new and exciting ideas and productions for 2020 and beyond.”

Anyone interested in working with The Belfast Maskers, or for questions/ideas for upcoming productions or workshops, please email Meg at:
