Event Description:

A Rollicking Spin on a Classic Fairy Tale

Music by Mary Rodgers, Lyrics by Marshall Barer; Book by Jay Thompson, Marshall Barer and Dean Fuller 

In this beloved musical comedy, Princess Winifred arrives at Prince Dauntless the Drab?s castle hoping for the hand of the prince. His mother, Queen Agravain, insists that her son can only marry a princess of true blood ? one that can feel a pea that is underneath a pile of mattresses.

The Story:

If you thought you knew the story of ?The Princess and The Pea,? you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that Lady Larken?s love for Sir Harry provided a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal altar post haste? Or that, in fact, it wasn?t the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night?

Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are you?ll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.
