The Mask and Wig Club, founded in 1889 by Clayton Fotterall McMichael, is the oldest all-male collegiate musical comedy troupe in the United States. Founded as an alternative to the existing dramatic outlets at the University of Pennsylvania, Mask and Wig has presented comedy, music, and dancing to the University of Pennsylvania, to Philadelphia and to audiences across the country. The performing Cast puts on several all-original shows each year, and is supported by the Club's own Stage Crew, Orchestra, and Business Staff. "Route 66" was written by Bobby Troupe, a member of the Mask and Wig Club and sung by Frank Sinatra. "Hey Daddy" is another Mask and Wig favorite by Troupe, very popular in the heyday of radio and performed by Mask and Wig to this day. Other Mask and Wig songs, such as "The Gypsy in My Soul," written by Clay Boland and Moe Jaffe, have been performed by the likes of Tommy Dorsey, Ella Fitzgerald and Benny Goodman. Today, the Maks and Wig is an awesome place to party, mingle, drink and have good times dancing and meeting new people or sharing stories with old friends. With live music and DJs playing great music, the Mask and Wig is your spot for a great party night!
