Youth Musical Theatre Company Presents
Once Upon a Mattress
If you thought you knew the story of "The Princess and The Pea," you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that it may not have been the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of beguiling songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are, you'll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.
Based upon the story "The Princess and the Pea" by Hans Christian Andersen | Music by Mary Rodgers | Book by Jay Thompson, Dean Fuller, and Marshall Barer | Lyrics by Marshall Barer | Adapted by Tom Briggs
