Once Upon A Mattress
February 15 to 25, 2018
The Hudson Music Club presents the Broadway Smash Musical!
Once Upon A Mattress is a delightful musical based on the fairytale The Princess and The Pea.
In a faraway kingdom long ago. King Sextimus is unable to speak due to an unhappy curse. His terror-of-a-wife, Queen Aggravain, has taken over control of the kingdom and has ruled that none can marry until her son, Prince Dauntless, marries. However, she manages to sabotage every princess that comes along.
When Lady Larken and Sir Harry learn they are going to be parents, wed or not. Sir Harry goes off to the land of the Swamp and is able to find an amazing princess, Winnifred the Woebegone. The Queen is horrified and immediately begins to scheme a supposedly impassable sensitivity test, but Winnifred, with some help of the King, Sir Harry and the Jester will not be so easy to get rid of.
