The director of MCP's current summer musical is Lara Gonzalez. This is the second time that Lara has taken the helm as director for the troupe. She made her MCP directorial debut last summer, bringing to life the highly successful, Shrek, the Musical. Lara is an accomplished musical/vocal director with numerous credits over 15 years for a variety of community theatres across the Cincinnati area. For MCP, she has appeared as Juror #7 in Twelve Angry Men, as Elizabeth in Imagine! Mason, and as a musician/performer in Sweetheart Revue. Audience members from that show still talk about "that gal who could belt a song, play the piano, the violin, and the viola and shake a mean tambourine." Not a stranger behind the scenes, Lara knows her way around power tools, serves as rehearsal pianist when needed, and takes on the tough jobs, most recently as Producer for Greater Tuna. She is also a critical part of the administration of MCP as the chair of its Communication Committee, as a two-year member of the Board of Directors and as the current Vice-President.
