Once Upon a Mattress is a take on the Hans Christian Anderson tale The Princess and the Pea. Queen Aggravian has complete control over an unhappy kingdom due to her husband, King Sextimus, being cursed and stuck without a voice. Aggravian also tries to keep Prince Dauntless from marrying by having prospective princesses take on her tests, only to fail miserably.
Lady Larken and Sir Harry are troubled by the events taking place and seek a possible match for Dauntless. They ultimately find Winnifred the Woebegone. Will she be the right one for Dauntless? Find out at the show.
The cast features Susan Crocker, Kate Holland, Robbie Lewis, Katharine Moser, Barb O'Daniel-Munger, Rick O'Daniel-Munger, Gerry Robertson, Jeremy Sapp, and Jared White. Christopher Gilbert directed Once Upon a Mattress.
