St. Augustine, FL â€” The KidzfACTory program at Limelight Theatre will stage Once Upon A Mattress this weekend in the Koger-Gamache Studio Theatre, a 75-seat black box space. This spring musical features 17 local students who dance, sing, and act their way through this fairytale with a few fun twists. See the cast list below.
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 it may not have been the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of beguiling songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, 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.
Show times are 5 p.m. Friday, March 25, and 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday, March 26. Tickets are $10 for adults, and $5 for children. Tickets can be purchased in advance at limelight-theatre.org
, or by calling the box office at 904-825-1164
. Limelight Theatre is located at 11 Old Mission Ave., uptown St. Augustine. Free parking is available street-side and onsite.
