The beloved story of The Princess and The Pea gets a delightfully off-kilter musical retelling courtesy of The Savoyard Light Opera Company at Corey Auditorium. You may think you know all the ins and outs of the story of the princess who couldn't sleep because of a pesky pea beneath her massive mattress pile, but Once Upon a Mattress will prove you hilariously wrong. First of all, did you know that it wasn't even a pea that caused Princess Winnifred's sleepless night? And what about the fact that she had to swim across a moat just to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Buoyed by funny, romantic and catchy songs, Once Upon a Mattress was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Musical when Carol Burnett starred in its original Broadway production back in 1960.
