Wild Horse Children’s Theater is thrilled to present the Tony Award winning musical comedy, and mixed up fairytale, ONCE UPON A MATTRESS.
Production dates are Fridays, May 4 & 11 at 7 pm, Saturdays May 5 & 12 at 4 pm and 7 pm and Sundays, May 6 & 13 at 4 pm at the Children's Museum of Northern Nevada, 813 N. Carson Street in Carson City.
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. Carol Scott, Executive Director says, “We are happy to showcase our very talented high school and college age actors in this production. Don’t let the fact that this show is based on a fairytale make you think it’s only for kids. While the kids will love the nutty characters and bright costumes, adults will love the wit, humor, and cleverness of the script and lyrics.” This show is a sprightly mix of 1950’s medieval fairy tale, snappy songs and dances, and the triumph of love. Once Upon a Mattress promises great fun for actors and audiences alike!
Ticket prices are $10 for general admission, $8 for seniors and students and $5 for ages 4-12.
