Bay Area Stage presents
ONCE UPON A MATTRESS

OPENS JULY 14


Call (707) 649-1053
for more information.

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.

Once Upon a Mattress

"As fresh, inventive and funny as ever...ONCE UPON A MATTRESS shows you can retell fairy tales with wit and sophistication, and more important, human feeling." —New York Daily News

"A hilariously nutty retelling of the beloved fairy tale THE PRINCESS AND THE PEA. The show itself is a musical comedy gem. MATTRESS is a masterpiece of its kind" —Michael Portantiere, Theatermania
