MASON, OH – Mars Hill Academy will present “The Jungle Book” on Fridays, November 11 & 18, at 7 p.m. and Saturdays, November 12 & 19 at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. at MHA.

Coming of age is one of the oldest themes in literature.  Gilgamesh, Enkidu, Huckleberry Finn all share the same experience.  Another character in this pantheon is Mowgli, the young boy who, pursued by a man-eating tiger, wanders into the jungle and is rescued by a she-wolf.

MHA seventh and eighth grade thespians will explore what it means to be a man, to be virtuous, and to be a human.  This production is unique in that the small cast will play multiple characters, and the actors never leave the stage.

Tickets for the show are on sale now for $10 and $15.  They can be purchased online at
