Mullen Theatre proudly presents, Once Upon a Mattress, the story follows the woes of a fictitious medieval kingdom caught in a debacle when an unfair queen decrees it illegal for her citizens to marry. Only when her son, the Prince Dauntless, finds true love and ties the knot may other citizens also unite in matrimony. The kingdom’s luck begins to change with the arrival of swamp-born Princess Winnifred, who is intent on winning the prince’s hand in marriage. What happens next involves the queen’s hilarious pursuits to keep her son a bachelor, involving wild dancing, melodrama, outrageous tests of strength, 20 mattresses and a pea.
April 2, 3, and 4th in the Rilko at 7:00. Adults: $10.00 Students: $5.00. Tickets are available here, but also at the door before each performance.
Miss Brooks has plenty of teacher troubles and her "escape" is in dreaming about her vacation. She has travel folders on several Caribbean cruises which she discusses with the athletic coach who owns his own little sailboat. Miss Brooks suddenly sees that perhaps he's "the man" for her. She's glad she isn't putting on the school play this year so she won't have to fight him for use of the gym. Then the ax falls. The play is thrust upon her! A battle royal develops. The coach's star athlete Ted gives up the team to play the leading boy's part. The daughter of the school board president is determined to play opposite him but she reads her lines so poorly that Miss Brooks gives the role to an attractive nobody with real talent. And that is when the chaos begins!
