When John and Tina decide to elope to Vegas, they are hoping for a calm and quiet ceremony...away from their crazy family and friends. But their secret is not as well kept as they'd hoped. First, John's party-ready friend Hugh shows up, hoping to give John the bachelor party he never had. This sparks a series of events which leads to call girls, interpretive dance, smugglers, mistaken identities, secret agents, and four identical sets of luggage. This off-the-wall farce will keep you guessing and laughing all the way to the end.

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 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.
Once Upon a Mattress is presented through special arrangement with R & H Theatricals.
