Costume, Theater Troupe Mummenschanz

Galloway, N.J. After 50 years of entertaining and delighting audiences, Mummenschanz will perform its anniversary production, “50 Years,” on the main stage at Stockton University’s Performing Arts Center on Friday, Oct. 21 at 7:30 p.m.

Mummenschanz is an internationally renowned movement/illusion/costume troupe. They will take audiences on a journey filled with imagination and poetry, putting on the most beloved sketches from the foundation’s repertoire over the past five decades. The name is German for mummery, or a play involving mummers, which is an early Modern English term for a mime artist.

It will look back at the most popular, most successful productions of years gone by, featuring legendary characters such as the Clay Masks and the Toilet Paper Faces. 

The show will see appearances by the delicate, air-filled Giants, the Pipe Creature and plenty of other bizarre objects and shapes brought to life by the troupe. The production will also include sketches featuring surprising new forms and characters that capture the signature Mummenschanz spirit.
