Laugh the winter blahs away in this hilarious musical version of the Princess and the Pea tale!  Once Upon a Mattress, which made Carol Burnett a star, is a musical comedy with music by Mary Rodgers, lyrics by Marshall Barer and book by Jay Thompson, Dean Fuller, and Marshall Barer.

It opened off-Broadway in May 1959, and then moved to Broadway.  It’s been successfully revived often, most recently in 1996 starring Sarah Jessica



In this fairy tale kingdom, King Sextimus has fallen under a curse  leaving him speechless and the nasty Queen Aggravian has taken over control of the kingdom.  Her son, poor Prince Dauntless, wants to marry but she is determined that this will not happen or she’ll lose her power to rule.   She devises a very special test that any princess who wants to marry her son must pass.  This state of affairs is upsetting to everyone and all wish for a princess for Dauntless.  Enter Princess Winnifred the Woebegone, who immediately catches the prince’s eye.
