Once Upon A Mattress

May 3, 2014 - 7:00pm - 9:30pm

In this hilarious tweaking of the fairy tale, "The Princess and the Pea", Queen Aggravain has ruled that none may marry until her son, Prince Dauntless gets married. However, she has managed to sabotage every princess that comes along. When Sir Harry and Lady Larken learn that they are going to be parents, wedding or no wedding, he goes off to the swamps and brings back Princess Winnifred. The queen is horrified and immediately begins to scheme, but Winnifred, with some help from Sir Harry, the King, and the Jester, isn't going to go quite as easy as the princesses before her.
Tickets are $4 for students (12th grade and younger) and senior citizens; $6 for adults.
