Meredith Ensemble Theatre will present the musical Once Upon a Mattress, February 21-26, 2017, in Jones Auditorium. Performances are February 21-25 at 7:30 p.m. and February 26 at 3 p.m.
If you thought you knew the story of The Princess and The Pea, you may be in for a huge surprise! Did you know, 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 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.
The musical features music by Mary Rodgers, book by Jay Thompson, Dean Fuller, and Marshall Barer, and lyrics by Marshall Barer.
Tickets are free for Meredith students, faculty & staff. Public tickets are $10 and $5 for students/senior citizens.
