Directed by Garry Lennon

Old Log Theatre will present ONCE UPON A MATTRESS, a musical comedy parody revealing the back stories absent from Hans Christian Anderson’s beloved fairy tale. With music by Mary Rodger, lyrics by Marshall Barer and book by Jay Thompson, Dean Fuller and Marshall Barer, ONCE UPON A MATTRESS opened on Broadway in 1959, starring Carol Burnett in her Broadway debut. Both the show and Burnett were Tony nominees.

Fresh, inventive, and delightful, ONCE UPON A MATTRESS retells the classic Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale ‘The Princess and the Pea’ with wit and sophistication, and more importantly, human feeling. This is a show that speaks to entire families and across generations

"A hilariously nutty retelling of the beloved fairy tale The Princess and the Pea. The show itself is a musical comedy gem. Mattress is a masterpiece of its kind." -  Theatermania
