Once Upon A Mattress - or - The P.rincess & The Pea A shy resident sent in this review of the recent high school play... What stood out to me about Once spon a Mattress were the characters. The first thing one relates to is the people of the story, however the cast of-Mattress stood out to me for a different reason. Each part is a classic stock character: very two- dimensional with one centralized goal that is the driving force behind each of their actions. Each role forces the actor to embrace the cartoonish qualities that go along with the stock characters and find the reality behind them. This play absolutely requires the actor to remain in their caricature of a persona. Every person that per- formed was the perfect caricature of a persona. Nothing more to say, but:.. Bravo! 8 t~ t~ ! 1 Allen Schaal took these photos of the high Allen gave the play a "very, very good" rating. school play - Once Upon A Mattress.
