Join us, and delight in the era of the 1940’s and experience the musical passion of a cabaret with the high energy talent of a variety show.

Once Upon a Mattress

Musical Direction by Jacob Miller

Music by Mary Rodgers. 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 walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam a 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 altar 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 raucous, romantic and melodic, this rolling 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.
Tony Nomination for Best Musical, Best Leading Actress in a Musical with
Carol Burnett as Winnifred, Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical with Sarah Jessica Parker as Winnifred.
