Once Upon a Mattress Once Upon a Mattress

Music by Mary Rogers | Book by Jay Thompson, Dean Fuller and Marshall Barer | Lyrics by Marshall Barer





If you thought you knew the story of "The Princess and the Pea", you may be in for a surprise. Did you know that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that Lady Larkin's love for Sir Harry provided a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal alter post haste? Or that, in fact, it wasn't the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night. Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are you'll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.
