Once Upon A Mattress

Mitchell, SD

This Rodgers and Hammerstein musical is a hysterical tweaking on the fairy tale, "The Princess and the Pea." In an unhappy kingdom, King Sextimus has been struck dumb by a witch’s curse and condemned not to speak again until “the mouse devours the hawk!” Queen Aggravain has assumed power and talks enough for everyone. She has decreed that no one in the Kingdom may wed until Prince Dauntless is married to a true princess of royal blood. When Sir Harry and Lady Larken learn that they are going to be parents, wed or not, Sir Harry is determined to find a true princess and returns with Princess Winnifred. Prince Dauntless is very impressed and is soon in love. The queen is horrified and begins to scheme, but Winnifred isn't going to be quite so easy to get rid of. The musical provides two footnotes to theater history: its songs were composed by Mary Rodgers, daughter of Broadway composer Richard Rodgers, and Carol Burnett first made her mark in the role of the princess.
