Once Upon A Mattress

Fort Atkinson

Many moons ago in a far off place, lived a handsome prince with a gloomy face . . . For he could not find a bride. The Princess and the Pea is one of the best known fairy tales of all. You may think you know this time honored tale but let us tell you the real story in one of Broadway’s happiest shows and one of the Fireside’s most popular productions in our history - ONCE UPON A MATTRESS. This show turns that well known fairy tale on its ear with the story of Princess Winifred of the swamps and Prince Dauntless the Drab and their up and down, inside-out love story. Naturally the course of true love never runs smoothly when you have a domineering mother, a conniving wizard, a mute king, and a court full of knights and ladies desperate to get married. Delightful music, beautiful period costumes, and knee-slapping, rib-tickling comedy will fill the theatre with happiness and joy! This is the show that made Carol Burnett a star. When you see ONCE UPON A MATTRESS you’ll understand why it has become our most requested show!
