ONCE UPON A MATTRESS is the hilarious musical story of romance in a fantasy kingdom. Queen Aggravain jealously protects her son Prince Dauntless from marrying any eligible princess, and will not allow anyone else in the kingdom to wed until her son does. When Sir Harry and Lady Larken learn they are to become parents, wed or not, Sir Harry takes matters into his own hands and goes into the swamp to search for a bride for the prince. There he discovers Princess Winnifred. The Queen is horrified and schemes to get rid of Princess “Fred,” but aided by Sir Harry and the Jester, Winnifred stakes her place in the kingdom.
