Once Upon a Mattress

July 4th-7th, 2019 

at The Cambridge Arts Theatre 

If you thought you knew the story of 'The Princess and the Pea,' you're in for a walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winifred swam the moat to reach Princess Dauntless the Drab? Or that Lady Larken's love for Sir Harry provided a very compelling reason that she reach the bridal altar post haste? Or, in fact, it wasn't a 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 rollicking spin on a familiar classic provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are, you'll never look at fairytales quite the same way again.
