ADDITIONAL INFO: 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.

Once Upon A Mattress, Music by Mary Rodgers, Lyrics by Marshall Barer, Book by Jay Thompson, Dean Fuller & Marshall Barer. Once Upon A Mattress is presented through special arrangement with ORiGiN™ THEATRICAL on behalf of R&H THEATRICALS.
