The famed story of the princess and the pea comes to life on stage in the delightful musical Once Upon a Mattress, presented by the talented Curtain Call Youth Players (grades 6 through 12). 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.

There was a silly opening act in which the dance while cute enough had nothing to do with the music, let alone with the sophomoric actors reciting lines like earnest eighth grade drama club members. The ballet itself was good enough, though several problems were seen in choreography: men too slight of build for the women they were to lift, going a bit off balance; various events on a stage too large to view them as an ensemble; silly anti-impressionist "home movies" that rather than giving the impression of dumb, badly edited and badly photographed home movies really were only that. Technically, shaky arabesques, inexpert pointe work (widely separated feet doing the movement that should have come from the hips) and shaky lifts distracted from a pleasant enough ballet. Worth goldstar's price but I wouldn't pay full price for this, with the more expensive but superior Atlanta ballet not so far away.
