Once Upon a Mattress: A Fairy Tale Musical Comedy
This lighthearted romp is a comic retelling of the classic Hans Christian Andersen story, The Princess and the Pea. Prince Dauntless is ready to find his princess but Queen Aggravain insists that for any marriage candidate must pass a difficult test to prove she's a genuine princess. Enter Winnifred, an unconventional princess who thinks she can beat the test, even though 12 princesses have already tried and failed. To make matters even worse, the Queen outlaws marriage for anyone in the kingdom until Dauntless has found his bride. That's right, Her Royal Highness has spoken: "Throughout the land no one may wed, 'till Dauntless shares his marriage bed." In fractured fairytale fashion, this hilarious musical pokes fun at its own medieval tropes, and infuses a classic story with a modern sensibility. Come join the adventure at Douglas Morrisson Theater in Hayward!
