Three Legged Dog Productions presents its follow up to 2017's Guys and Dolls, Once Upon a Mattress.
Based on the wildly popular Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, The Princess and the Pea, Once Upon a Mattress is a musical theatre production that spins the tale of a medieval kingdom’s search for a proper princess to marry the hapless Prince Dauntless. Everyone, including the knights and ladies of the court, who can’t wed until the prince is married off, want to see the lonely prince engaged. Everyone, that is, except the domineering Queen Aggravain who is unwilling to cut the royal apron strings. Enter an energetic and over the wall (and through the moat) princess who is about to turn the kingdom on its ear. A classic tale woven with intrigue, misdirection and comedy. Fun for the whole family.
