‘Complete joy’ keeps 1000 Faces performers coming back

‘Complete joy’ keeps 1000 Faces performers coming back

When Tessa Crews was 15 years old, she was tasked with playing one of the most memorable roles in the 1000 Faces Mask Theater production, and one of the few roles that was played partially without a mask. 

Most people can remember the awkward years of being a teenager and having to deal with insecurities and body-image issues. This experience was no different for Crews, but she was chosen to be the “virgin sacrifice” in that year’s production, giving her a spotlight role with extravagant costumes.
