The famed story of the princess and the pea comes to life on stage in the delightful musical Once Upon a Mattress. No one in the kingdom is permitted to marry until Prince Dauntless does -- but when a suitable candidate finally arrives, his overprotective mother concocts a secret test that the young princess must pass before she'll allow them to wed. Of course, it's hard to prepare when sleep is in such short supply, even on a stack of 20 mattresses. Will Princess Winnifred, the latest candidate, fall prey to Queen Aggravain's schemes, or will she prove more clever? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance features a score by Mary Rodgers, and was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Musical in 1960.

Extremely enjoyable performance. The Spellers had fun quirky personalities portraying school kids pretty much like they are. We loved Leaf and his innocence and love of the experience. Olive was our favorite, along with the most moving song she had excelent comic timing and a voice that was superior. One of he most hularious moments was her struggle with the micophone. The cast as a whole put on a great show. Not sure giving so much candy to the audience was such a good idea as the constant opening of wrappers in the second act was very distracting!
