Once Upon A Mattress - Spring 2008

    Many moons ago, in a far off place
    Lived a handsome prince with a gloomy face,
    For he did not have a bride.
    Oh, he sighed alas!
     And he pined, alas,
    But alas the Prince couldn’t find a lass
    Who would suit his mother’s pride.

The untold story of the Princess and the Pea was brought to the Brandeis stage in the Spring of 2008. The mute king, moat-swimming princess, sinister Queen, and lovable prince were received with open arms and sold-out audiences.

The energy of the show was infectious – the story itself was entertaining, but it was the cast that made the production even more exciting and enjoyable. The castle set and medieval costumes looked fantastic, and transported the audiences to the magical kingdom night after night.
