Once Upon a Mattress

THIS EVENT HAS PASSED. PLEASE VISIT WWW.CAILLOUXTHEATER.COM FOR A LISTING OF CURRENT EVENTS.

August 12-14, 2016 – The Playhouse 2000 Youth Theater Program will present the culmination of their first ever Summer Youth Musical Camp, Once Upon a Mattress, August 11-14, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2:30 p.m.

If you thought you knew the story of ‘The Princess and The Pea,’ you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that Lady Larken’s love for Sir Harry provided a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal altar post haste? Or that, in fact, it wasn’t the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are you’ll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.
