Get on the Yard
Join in the excitement of watching 4,400+ Midshipmen in formal uniform marching to “Anchors Aweigh,” or hundreds of Plebes working together to get to the top of the Herndon Monument. Feel the spirit of the centuries-old rivalry with Army and the countless other sporting spectacles that occur throughout the year. Be moved by the myriad musical and drama performances, as well as some of the crowning events of Midshipmen life — the proud end of Plebe Summer and the celebrations of Commissioning Week. No matter when you visit the Yard, there is something special to see!
Masquerader's Fall Play
The United States Naval Academy’s Masqueraders bring to life the epic tale of Jason and the Argonauts in this contemporary spin on classic mythology. Tony Award-winning playwright Mary Zimmerman invites viewers of Argonautika to board the Argo to embark upon “the first voyage of the world,” in which our hero, Jason, leads his crew on a perilous journey for the miraculous Golden Fleece. Along the way, the Argonauts discover monsters, mischief, and a love story, gifted from the goddesses Athena and Hera, themselves. Argonautika is a play full of hearty humor and gut-wrenching drama. Described by the Chicago Tribune as “endlessly imaginative, and thoroughly enjoyable,” Argonautika invites viewers to Ancient Greece's magic and marvelous intrigues, including the origins of western seafaring, and the creation of the night sky's constellations. The Masqueraders will launch Argonautika this November in the historic Mahan Theatre.
Due to language and mature content, the play may not be appropriate for young children.
