This summer, Orange Community Players presents Once Upon a Mattress, a musical comedy based on the classic fairy tale The Princess and the Pea . . . well, sort of! Please join us as we take a delightful journey to a land far, far away. In this land, the queen rules the roost and no one may marry until she finds the perfect match for her son, Dauntless. She and the Wizard constantly think up difficult tests, making this highly unlikely to happen. The king is unable to speak and uses the Jester as his interpreter and accomplice. Sir Harry takes things into his own hands and finds the perfect princess, Winnifred, or "Fred." Dauntless falls head over heels for her, quite literally! Come find out whether or not this fairy tale has a happy ending for all!
Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for seniors and students. Advanced tickets will be sold online and at our rehearsal location, the old Village Video space in Boone Square. Performance times are 8:00 p.m. on July 28, 29, and 30. The July 31 performance will be at 2:00 p.m.
