Meg Nickerson has been appointed as the new artistic director of the Belfast Maskers. Shortly after moving to Belfast in 1982, Nickerson began looking for theater companies to work with, though Belfast had no organized theater. Since musical theater was her first love, she began working with Camden Civic Theatre as an actor, director and member of the board of directors. In 1991 she was contacted by Diane Coller-Wilson and Basil Burwell to fill a last-minute role opening in Antigone of the Andes with the newly formed Belfast Maskers. She has been actively involved in the theater community of Belfast since then. She has directed, acted, and held various tech roles for the Belfast Maskers (including serving on the board of directors), Northport Music Theater and Midcoast Actors’ Studio, and served as the stage director for Belfast Area High School for 14 years. Anyone interested in working with the Maskers, or with ideas for upcoming productions or workshops, is invited to contact Nickerson at
