Fake Brothers Bio:
Grown out of a lifelong friendship and desire to perform Fake Brothers was originally formed by Caylan McKay (a graduate of UCB East) and Patrick Basquill (a graduate of the Second City Intensive Program) in 2013 as a two man improv team. In 2013 Cucalorus Film Festival put together a competition for local filmmakers called the Cough Syrup Film Festival, in which participants would have to create a 3 minute short film using cough syrup as the prompt.
Nestled high in the heart of Wilmington, City Stage is a 220 capacity, century-old theatre that now offers a full season of contemporary musicals and plays for a unique entertainment experience. Ranging from The Rocky Horror Show to Romeo and Juliet, City Stage shows have shocked, thrilled, educated and most of all, delighted audiences with stellar casts and superb direction.
ABOUT THE BUILDING:
Plans for the old Masonic Building located at 21 North Front Street were conceived in 1897, when several Masonic groups banded together and decided to build a new Masonic Temple. Construction began in 1898 and the cornerstone of the building was laid on May 13, 1899.
The fifth floor of the building was converted to the present theatre around 1914. It was occupied by the Scottish Rite Bodies from 1909 to 1981. The robing room for the Masons is now the dressing room for the actors. The second, third and fourth floors were used by the Masonic and Allied Masonic Bodies from the time the building was opened until 1981.
On June 24, 1982, the building was sold to the Wilmington Holding Corporation. Offices were then leased to the Army Corps of Engineers who also leased space in 23 North Front Street. If you look in the alley between 21 and 23 North Front, you can see the breezeway between the two buildings which was used as a crossover by the engineers.
The building changed hands again on August 31, 1992, when actor Dennis Hopper purchased the property. After purchasing the Masonic Building, Mr. Hopper embarked on renovations of the building. Mr. Hopper then sold the building to John Sutton who is the current owner of the Masonic Building.
