Wagoner Playhouse Association kicks off ‘Opal’s Husband’ tonight

— In “Opal’s Husband,” a dinner theater comedy production by the Wagoner Playhouse Association, Opal (played by Donna Sasser), who lives in a dump at the edge of town, decides to mail order her best friend Rosie (played by Kristen Mallett) a husband described as 6-foot-2, handsome, virile, and the former captain of his football team.

The fun begins when 95-year old Mr. Handsome (played by Chuck Sasser) arrives after escaping from a nursing home for old folks, pursued by his conniving daughter (played by Mary Scott) and her husband (played by Richard Gray), who want his money.

In a three-act series of hilarious hijinks, Opal manages to thwart the daughter and her husband by marrying Mr. Handsome herself in order to save him from their greedy clutches.

“Opal’s Husband,” written by John Patrick, is directed in the WPA production by Don Neal, who has both starred in and directed previous WPA presentations. Elizabeth Gray and Brittany Schaeffer will assist as producers and directors in training.

The play opens tonight. Performances also are scheduled for Saturday and March 22-23 at the theater located at 301 S. Grant. Dinner is served beginning at 7 p.m. each night, followed by the play at 8 p.m. Price for dinner and the play is $18. Show-only tickets are $7.

Information: Donna Sasser, (918) 476-6189.
