Once Upon a Mattress

by Dean Fuller, Jay Thompson & Marshall Barer

Think you know the story of “The Princess and The Pea?” You may be in for a surprise! Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, this rollicking spin on royal courtship provides some side-splitting shenanigans. You’ll never look at fairy tales the same way again!

Be a part of history when Cary Players produces the very first musical to hit the stage of the brand new Cary Arts Center in downtown Cary! This 399-seat state-of-the-art theatre will quickly become Cary’s hottest cultural gathering place, and you can be there at our first production – the beloved musical Once Upon A Mattress! 

Directed by Nancy Rich (of Actors Comedy Lab) and musical director Coty Cockrell.
