The SAAC Arts Academy Drama Club is presenting the one-hour “Once Upon a Mattress: Youth Edition” on November 9-10. This fairy-tale musical is a fun rendition of “The Princess and The Pea.”
Many moons ago in a far-off place, Queen Aggravain decreed no couples could marry until her son, Prince Dauntless, found a bride. Princesses came from far and wide to win the hand of the prince, but none could pass the impossible tests given to them by the Queen. That is, until the “shy” swamp princess, Winnifred the Woebegone, showed up. Would she be able to pass the Sensitivity Test, marry her prince and help Lady Larkin and Sir Harry to the altar? For after all, a princess is a delicate thing.
