Once Upon A Mattress, Leawood Stage Company’s outdoor summer family musical in 2016, is based on the Hans Christian Anderson Fairy Tale “The Princess and The Pea” with a hilarious spin. Princess Winnifred actually swims the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab. Chances are you'll never look at fairy tales the same way again. It wasn't the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night. Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, the familiar classic tale of royal courtship provides for some side-splitting shenanigans.
The Leawood Stage Company presented Once Upon a Mattress for free July 14, 15, 16, 17 & 21, 22, 23, 8:00 pm nightly, at the Ironwoods Amphitheater in Ironwoods Park, 14701 Mission Road, Leawood, KS 66224.
Leawood Stage Company was pleased to welcome back Annette Cook as director of Once Upon a Mattress. Cook has directed, costumed, and appeared on stage in productions across the metro including LSC. She directed The Sound of Music for LSC in 2013 and her costumes highlighted last summer’s production of Oliver.
