Led by Jon Scheiding, in the role of William Mason, a cast of more than 50 will bring to life the people and events that touched the life of the city’s founder. Through word, song and dance MCP will guide the audience from William’s teenage years beginning in 1777 in Pennsylvania to the naming of the town in 1835. Travel with William to the Revolutionary War, down the Ohio River, to the conflict with Indians in the wilderness of Southwest Ohio, to the social scene of Cincinnati and right here to Muddy Creek and Mason, Ohio!

Imagine! Mason is a premiere work written by John B. Miller with music and lyrics by John and his associate Stephanie Taylor. The show will be produced and directed by veteran MCP members Rebecca McLaughlin and Laureen Catlin. The production will be accompanied by a full orchestra, led by Instrumental Director Larry Hirth, with vocal direction by Jennifer Lisa.

Jon Scheiding will be joined by Kaleigh-Brooke Dillingham as William’s wife, Mary McClelland Mason, veteran actor Chris Tuell as William’s brother-in-law Senator John Smith, Ohio Community Theater Award-Winning Performer Joel Lind as Aaron Burr, and Mason High School alumna Shannon Mahoney as Sarah Murphy, the woman who gave William his second chance at love after the loss of his beloved first wife.
