If you thought you knew the story of the Princess and the Pea you are in for a walloping surprise. On July 14, 15, 20 and 21, CIP Berkshire will bring you behind the scenes of this classic in “Once Upon a Mattress” at the Spectrum Playhouse, and we’ve got a few tickets to giveaway.
Did you know, 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!
