Puffs or Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic
Directed by Trish Cooper
Produced by Lara Gonzalez
Popular off-Broadway, the show was written by Matt Cox and came to the stage in 2015. It is the story of the "others" who populated a famous wizarding school; specifically the Puffs. It has been dubbed "a fast-paced romp" and acclaimed as "never going more than a minute without a laugh."
Puffs finished its run March 18, 2023.
The Dining Room
Directed by Gail Rudolph
Assistant Directed by Robert Terry
Produced by Susan Berger
The Dining Room is a comedy of manners. It is set in a single dining room where 18 scenes from different households overlap and intertwine. Each story is focused around a different family during different time periods who has in their possession the same dining room furniture set, manufactured in 1898. It is the setting for breakfasts, dinners, and all special occasions for each of the families who gather round the table.
The Dining Room will be presented May 4-13, 2023.
Above the Sand
Directed by Lara Gonzalez
Produced by Tess Catlin and Gail Rudolph
Above the Sand is written and composed by MCP member Tom Davis. It tells of the challenges and triumphs of Wilbur and Orville Wright as they bring the power of flight to the world. The story takes the audience on a journey from a bicycle shop in Dayton, Ohio to Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, Washington, D.C., and Paris, France. Above the Sand is a piece of local history that has affected life around the world. It shines a light on the struggles of those who dream an idea into reality, then ultimately triumph.
Above the Sand will be presented July 21-29, 2023.
Escanaba in da Moonlight
Directed by Ray Lebowski
Produced by Laureen Catlin
Escanaba in da Moonlight is a snapshot into the lives of the Soady men. Retreating to their "home away from home" in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan they can spend time together doing their two favorite things ... drinking and bagging bucks. At 35, though, Reuben Soady is in danger of being the oldest family member in history without a buck to call his own. Laughs abound as you get a glimpse into this traditional male rite of passage as lived out in the unique "Yooper" way.
Escanaba in da Moonlight will be presented
September 8-16, 2023.
Gender Bender 5.0
Directed by Peyton Hahn and Jon Scheiding
Closing out the 2023 Season will be Gender Bender 5.0. This production will be in deference to the 2021 version of the show which was forced to cancel. Performers from that production will be invited to return and the song selections will come from shows that MCP has performed over its 50 year history. It will be a fitting closure to a wonderful year of celebrating MCP and its contributions to the arts in Mason!
Gender Bender 5.0 will be presented
October 27-November 4, 2023.
