Once Upon A Mattress (Sherbino Theatre Company)

Sherbino Theatre Company presents, Once Upon a Mattress (Music by Mary Rodgers, Lyrics by Marshall Barer and Book by Jay Thompson, Dean Fuller and Marshall Barer) 

The much-adored Sherbino Theatre Company Troupe is back with a fun production of "Once Upon A Mattress".  Featuring over 20 local actors and musicians, Directed by Kathleen O'Mara & Musican Direction by Candice Carls.

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 of the Drab?  Or that Lady Larken's love for Sir Harry provided a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal alter 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 hillarious 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 you'll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again!

Thanks to our sponsors!
