Once Upon A Mattress was our show for the spring of 2007. It is a comedic retelling of the fairy tale, “The Princess and the Pea.” The kingdom is ruled by a mute king and a decidedly talkative queen. No one in the kingdom can be married until Prince Dauntless marries a princess of true royal blood. Every princess in the neighboring kingdoms has been to the castle to be tested, but the queen and the wizard have managed to make sure each of them has failed. When Winnifred the Woebegone appears, Dauntless immediately falls for her and the entire kingdom assists in making sure she passes the test.
