Once Upon A Mattress

Friday, April 3 - 8:00 PM

UVA Drama presents ONCE UPON A MATTERSS Music by Mary Rodgers, Lyrics by Marshall Barer, Book by Jay Thompson, Dean Fuller & Marshall Barer. Directed by Amanda McRaven.

If you thought you knew the story of The Princess and The Pea, prepare for a definitely-not-classic surprise of songs and shenanigans. This irreverent musical spin on Hans Christian Anderson’s tale features a muscular moat-swimming princess who goes to herculean lengths to win the hand of Prince Dauntless. Everyone in the court (forbidden to wed until the prince is married off), is anxious for a successful royal match. Everyone, that is, except the evil overbearing queen mother unwilling to cut the imperial apron strings.
