Show Description:

In this humorous adaptation of the 1835 Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale "The Princess and the Pea", the Queen decreed no couples can marry until her son, Prince Dauntless, finds a bride. Princesses came from far and wide to win the hand of the prince, but none could pass the impossible tests given to them by the Queen. Will the “shy” Princess Winnifred be able to pass the Queen’s sensitivity test, and marry her prince? Once Upon A Mattress is a delightful musical that is sure to delight the whole family.
