The Middle School To Present: Once Upon a Mattress

It’s time again for the Middle School’s annual musical production! If you thought you knew the story of The Princess and The Pea, you may be in for quite a surprise! The mischievous Minstrel (Christian Safford) and Jester (Rachel Stressinger) bring you the little-known ‘true story’ that begins long ago on a stormy night.  The quest to find a princess for Prince Dauntless the Drab (Wyeth Messer) turns out to be a hilarious adventure featuring many colorful characters including an overbearing Queen (Morgan Harrington), a mute King (Austin Yetter) and a brave Knight (Zachary Scime).  The ladies and gentleman of the kingdom cheer on the boisterous Princess Winnifred (Campbell Brown) as she tries to pass the test and win the Prince’s hand in marriage.   This clever and slightly ridiculous version of a classic tale is sure to entertain people of all ages. Chances are, you’ll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again!

Palmer Auditorium at 7pm.  Tickets to go on sale Wednesday, November 16, 2016.  Tickets can be purchased online by visiting or emailing Bring your family, friends, children and grandparents for an evening of fun and laughter!
