Once Upon a Mattress

ONCE UPON A MATTRESS

Music by MARY RODGERS
Lyrics by MARSHALL BARER
Book by JAY THOMPSON, DEAN FULLER and MARSHALL BARER

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.

A huge thank you to everyone who has come out to support us this summer. You have helped us raise over $1,000 for theatre students at GHS.

We still have a few events left before the school year starts and we begin to work on our fall play.




FIRST! 
Saturday, August 5th is the last day of the Sidewalk Bazaar. Come down to our booth, across from Virgilio's anytime between 9:00am and 5:00pm. We are selling ice cold water, sodas, and iced tea!


SECOND:
The August Block Party is next Saturday, August 12th. We will be there with cold drinks and smiles all night! 
**This is your LAST CHANCE to help support students going on the NYC trip before their final payments are due!!**


FINALLY:
Our last fundraiser before school gets into full swing is the final Block Party of the summer. Friday, September 1st we will be on Main Street with drinks and your last chance to donate to the program before we begin working on our fall show, Nora's Lost.
