If you thought you knew the story of the Princess and the Pea, you are in for a surprise! Did you know that Princess Winnifred the Woebegone 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? Due to an unhappy curse, King Sextimus is unable to speak. His overbearing wife, Queen Aggravain, has taken over control of the kingdom. She has decreed that only the princess who can pass her test may marry her son. Furthermore, no one else in the kingdom may marry until Prince Dauntless does. Through a series of wonderful songs, silly antics, and moments of romance, Once Upon a Mattress presents a rather unexpected spin on a familiar classic.
Rehearsals and set construction are in full swing as the GCS Footlights cast prepares to transport the audience back to a fictional medieval kingdom in 15th Century Europe. Once Upon a Mattress is a family friendly show that is packed with side-splitting shenanigans. After this hilarious take on Kings, Queens, Princesses, and Jesters, you’ll never look at fairy tales the same way
