Once Upon a Mattress
What a wonderful performance of Once Upon a Mattress this past weekend!
Directed by Robby and Dotty Davis, Theatre teachers extraordinaire, the cast and crew of Once Upon a Mattress did not disappoint. Our students are talented, passionate, smart, and funny and all of that came shining through on stage this weekend! Thank you for all the tireless work of the Brookstone Theatre Department, as well as the Brookstone Fine Arts Alliance, for making this show-stopping weekend come together seamlessly.
For those who aren’t familiar with the show, a synopsis is below:
Many moons ago in a far-off place, Queen Aggravain decreed no couples could marry until her son, Prince Dauntless, found a bride. Princesses came from far and wide to win the hand of the prince, but none could pass the impossible tests given to them by the Queen. That is, until the “shy” swamp princess, Winnifred the Woebegone, showed up. Would she be able to pass the Sensitivity Test, marry her prince and help Lady Larkin and Sir Harry to the altar? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the classic tale The Princess and the Pea provides some side-splitting shenanigans. For after all, a princess is a delicate thing.
