Once Upon a Mattress in Concert
Sunday, October 27, 2019 . 4PM

Venue: Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. Dekelboum Concert Hall, reserved seating.

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 Mary Rodgers (daughter of Richard Rodgers), 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.

Join Young Artists of America at Strathmore as over 150 talented young instrumentalists and vocalists celebrate the 60th anniversary of this timeless score, as well as that of the Broadway debut of its star, Carol Burnett.

Tickets: Regular/Seniors $28, Student/Youth $20. Click here.
