Description

Simms Center for the Performing Arts, Auditorium
Tickets will be available on February 12

In a faraway kingdom long, long ago there lived a Queen Aggravain determined to keep keep her son, Dauntless the Drab, single forever. She creates tests designed to guarantee no princess is able to pass the test required to be good enough to be the bride of her son. The real problem is the law in the kingdom decreeing that no one may get married until Dauntless has a wife.

Enter the most unlikely candidate of all, Princess Winnifred the Woebegone who captures the heart of Prince Dauntless by swimming the moat to get into the castle. Queen Aggravain devises the most impossible test of all, a pea under 20 mattresses to test the sensitivity and tenderness of an improbable princess. When Winnifred awakens after a terrible night's sleep complaining of lumpy mattresses, it is declared she has passed the test and is able to marry Dauntless, which allows the rest of the kingdom to get married as well.

Once Upon a Mattress is a delightful musical that has become a fan favorite since first appearing on Broadway in 1959, launching the career of Carol Burnett. Filled with energetic dances and memorable songs, it's a family friendly musical sure to please audience members of all ages.
