Frost Drama proudly presents its spring performance of Once Upon a Mattress! Performances will be held in the school theatre on Thursday, May 2, Friday, May 3, and Saturday, May 4. Performances each night will begin at 7 p.m.

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 it may not have been the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of beguiling 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.

In this adaptation for pre-high school students, the content has been edited to better suit younger actors and audiences, but all the magic, hilarity and fun of the original are still in place. Getting To Know... Once Upon A Mattress is the perfect show to introduce young people to the magic of live theater.
