A beloved tale, “Once Upon A Mattress,” is coming to Children’s Theatre of Annapolis from May 5 through May 21.
Many moons ago in a far-off place, Queen Aggravain decreed no couples could marry until her son, Prince Dauntless, found a bride. Princesses came from far and wide to win the hand of the prince, but none could pass the impossible tests given to them by the queen. That is, until the “shy” swamp princess, Winnifred the Woebegone, showed up.
Would she be able to pass the sensitivity test, marry her prince and help Lady Larkin and Sir Harry to the altar? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the classic tale “The Princess and the Pea” provides some side-splitting shenanigans. For after all, a princess is a delicate thing.
The show is directed by Terry Bouma, with musical direction by Terry Bouma and choreography by Rebecca Vourvoulas.
Showtimes are 7:00pm Fridays, 11:00am and 4:00pm Saturdays and 2:00pm Sundays from May 5 to May 21.
