Once Upon A Mattress
Everyone loves a 'happily ever after' story!
Hans Christian Andersen's classic fairytale, "The Princess and the Pea," comes to the stage as a musical comedy in Mount Vernon Comunity Children's Theatre spring production 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, 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 sidesplitting shenanigans. Chances are you'll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again....
