(Medora, ND) – The Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation, is proud to announce that Jared Mason, a former cast member of the Medora Musical, will be in Medora for daily concert engagements July 25 – July 31.
The solo concert will be a hot ticket in Medora. Mason — an award-winning recording artist, composer, and actor, most recently starred on Broadway as Jerry Lee Lewis in the Tony Award winning musical, “Million Dollar Quartet” — has promised a mix of original music, some Jerry Lee Lewis, a classic yodel, and a reprisal of two songs from his days in the Medora Musical that guests still request every year – “I Am Free” and “Joy.”
Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation President, Randy Hatzenbuhler said “Jared is one of the all-time favorites to have performed in Medora and is one of the most accomplished performers among our alumni.”
Mason was a Burning Hills Singer from 1993 to 1998 (then known as Jared Lillis) and then returned to the Medora Musical as Jared Mason to star on the keyboard in 2007.
Prior to boogying with Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, and Elvis every night in “Million Dollar Quartet,” Jared coaxed captivating rhythms out of everyday objects in the International Percussion Sensation, “STOMP.” His debut album, “She Believes in Me,” won album of the year at the Los Angeles Music Awards. Jared is delighted to be returning to his favorite place in the west for the 50th anniversary celebration of the Medora Musical.
Hatzenbuhler said Mason will perform daily at the Old Town Hall at 1:00 pm MDT, July 25 to July 31. Seating is limited in the 150 seat historic theater and tickets can be purchased for $10 by calling 1-800-MEDORA-1 or at medora.com.
