McKayla Marso, recently seen in the national tour of “Spamalot,” plays the ill-fated princess. Sean Dillon is her husband, Prince Charles. Ross Young directs the Actors Theater of Minnesota production with musical direction from Kevin Dutcher. (7:30 p.m. Fri.-Sat., Wed.-Thu., 5 p.m. Sun., Camp Bar, 490 N.
