Family Friendly Musical, "Once Upon a Mattress"
Spalding Theatre Productions 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 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, 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! Starring Junior Julia Rach as Princess Winnifred the Woebegone and Freshman Christopher Decker as Prince Dauntless the Drab. Directed by Jacki Dixon. $10 for adults, $7 for children under 7. March 28th, 29th and April 4th, 5th at 7:00pm. March 30th at 2:00pm. Refreshments will be available during intermission.
