Once Upon A Mattress

Following on the success of our two previous Community Musicals,‘The Hired Man’ and ‘The Dreaming’, we are proud to present our third Community Musical, Once Upon A Mattress.

If you thought you knew the story of Hans Christian Andersen's famous fairy tale, The Princess and the Pea, you might be in for a big surprise!

Twelve princesses have tried to win the hand of Prince Dauntless in marriage, but each has failed a rigourous and almost impossible test of their true royalty set by his mother, the Queen. Desperate to marry his Lady lover, Sir Harry finds princess number 13, Winnifred who's test involves sleeping on a pea. Will Winnifred pass the test?

With a 1920's twist, sparkling with glitz and glamour and backed by a wonderful musical score, this hilarious, romantic, raucous and rollicking spin on the classic tale of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for many side-splitting moments.

Chances are you'll never look at fairytales quite the same way again!
