A-A HS to present fall musical -- 'Once Upon A Mattress'

Friday, October 12, 2012

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 the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that Lady Larken'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 rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are that you'll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.

This hilarious production hits the Roxy stage on Nov. 9, 10, and 11.

Watch for more details coming soon. Mark the date and join them for all the fun!
