You’ve never seen the story of ‘The Princess of the Pea’ told like this! Once Upon a Mattress is a rollicking spin on the classic tale. Come join us for a night of laughter, love, and mischief. 


The Queen has declared that no couples in the kingdom may wed until her son, Prince Dauntless, has found a suitable princess to be his bride. No princess could ever pass Queen Aggravain’s test, so Sir Harry has taken it upon himself to find the perfect bride. If he succeeds, he can marry Lady Larken at long last.

Sir Harry arrives with the unexpected Princess Winnifred the Woebegone. She is unlike any princess that has come before. She is unashamed of her boisterous and loud personality, and she quickly captures the heart of the kingdom, including Prince Dauntless. The Queen has met her match.

With the help of her trusty sidekick, The Wizard, she concocts a test that Winnifred is sure to fail. Surely this princess of the swamp will fail The Sensitivity Test. Little does the Queen know that her “loyal” kingdom dwellers will do anything to help Winnie succeed.

Will such a brash and unrefined princess be able to pass the Sensitivity Test? Will Dauntless find love? We’ll find out in this side-splitting, musical comedy! 

Once Upon a Mattress teaches us to look at the heart of others. Princess Winnifred may not fit the delicate and dainty mold of a princess, yet she unites the kingdom through her genuine love for all people.
