Wooster School Theatre presents "Once Upon a Mattress," a musical comedy. Music by Mary Rodgers, book by Jay Thompson, Dean Fuller and Marshall Barer, and lyrics by Marshall Barer.

If you thought you knew the story of "The Princess and The Pea," and even if you don't, you may be in for a big and hysterical surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat of a castle to reach and marry Prince Dauntless the Drab who is smothered by his mother the wicked Queen Agravain. There is also a mute King, and Lady Larkin whose love for Sir Harry now requires a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal altar as soon as possible? Also, in fact, it wasn't the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? This show is a fractured fairy tale that is carried on a wave of wonderful songs, a hilarious story and performed by a very wacky and talented cast. They brilliantly create this nutty classic musical story on the stage of the Wooster Theatre.
