Mattress yet. But you will get a chance this July as the Mighty Oaks Players return from a 2-year hiatus with a veteran cast to pull it off. Patricia Alagna Wallace, playing Queen Aggravain, feels the play has such stamina (it debuted in 1959 as a short play at a Pennsylvania adult summer camp), because “…it’s hysterical, …brilliant…and the music is singable”. Ms. Wallace who has appeared in several of the Mighty Oak Productions, considers it her “home theatre”. Offstage, she is the Executive Director of SOBA, an addiction treatment center. Her sister, Jennifer Alagna is the show’s director. When asked about that collaboration, Patricia feels their relationship only adds to her performance be cause the two communicate so well. Julie Freeman, the play’s Princess Winnifred, also has a long list of credits in community theatre; she can tap dance, sing, and teach fourth grade. “I enjoy playing this carefree ‘swamp’ Princess,” she says. A woman who, as Julie describes her, “doesn’t conform to any particular style.” Prince Dauntless is played by James Burbank, a re turning Mighty Oaks Player. He is glad to be acting again with the troupe after such a long pause in pro duction. James sees his role as the Prince as a funny one, which gives him the freedom to do what he loves most – sing! “The Prince is sheltered, naïve and light hearted…..I can relate to him as a single adult.” The Mighty Oak Players are especially excited to re turn with this production on July 21-24 at the Mon roe Performing Arts Center, 1629 Perrineville Road, Monroe Twp. Tickets can be purchased at the door or online at: www.monroetownshipculturalarts.com.
