Once Upon A Mattress, music by Mary Rodgers, lyrics by Marshall Barer, and book by Jay Thompson, Dean Fuller, and Marshall Barer.

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 Lady Larken's love for Sir Harry provided a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal alter 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, 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. 

Director Dr. Ellen Peck calls Once Upon A Mattress a "fun, quirky take on the classic fairy tale" and is sure audiences will love the wacky characters and catchy music.  "This will be a treat for the entire family!" Chances are you'll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.
