Once Upon a Mattress, a favorite of Wayne County, and of Gates Hall returns for YouTHeatre (second time around) under the veteran leadership of Director, Robert Gorski. “Mattress is one of my favorite shows. Thanks to Paul Liedman, it’s where I got my start on the production side of things.” Mattress has been performed at Gates Hall twice prior, once as a Gatesinger production, and the last as a YouTheater production in 1996. “However, you are in for a twist, this is not the Mattress of old.”
With returning Seniors, Amanda Vander Byl (Queen Aggravain), Katie Holleran (Princess Winnifred), Diana Hunn (Minstrel), Jayde Gray (Lady Larken), Allison Carnwath (Princess #12), Emily Sawdy (Lady in Waiting), Brandon Fellows (Knight #1) and Gregory Maddock (Prince Dauntless), This is a show not to be missed. Rounding out the leading roles, Mark Montondo (Jester), Luke DeFisher (Wizard), Josh Forget (Sir Harry) and Daniel Rehor (King Sextimus the Silent). With the help of over twenty Ladies in Waiting, Knights, Soldiers, and Castle Servants in the Chorus, this is an Musically Superior Production.
Returning to the Production Crew, Jaime Akerley (Choreography), Lois Fiegl (Music), Adrian Vander Byl (Lighting), Rebecca Fisher (Costumes), Dan Montondo and Karen Nail (Producers), Anne Vander Byl and Diane Montondo (Tickets and House Managers) have made this production a smooth process. Adding newcomer, Julie Harland (Stage Manager/Set Decoration and Nightingale of Samarkand in 1996) has only made the process easier.
