ONCE UPON A MATTRESS (Mainstage) – Nov 2015

TICKETLEAP-GRAPHIC---MATTRESS1MAINSTAGE MUSICAL - HOLIDAYS 2015
Once Upon A Mattress

Our Holiday all-ages production features 17 amazing professional adult actors, plus teens and a non-auditioned youth ensemble.  If you thought you knew the story of 'The Princess and The Pea,' you may be in for a walloping surprise! This is the REAL way that tale went down! Did you know that Princess Winnifred ("Fred" for short) actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that Lady Larken's love for Sir Harry provided a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal altar post-haste? Or that, in fact, it wasn't the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs ("Shy", "Normandy" "Opening for A Princess"), this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and come-uppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are you'll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.
