Final Weekend for Once Upon a Mattress! 

Gloriana Musical Theatre has its final weekend for its production of “Once Upon A Mattress,” a musical comedy based on the classic tale of The Princess and the Pea.

The story follows Princess Winnifred as she seeks the hand of Prince Dauntless the Drab. Trouble arises when the prince’s mother, Queen Aggravain, insists that her son marry only a true princess — that is, one who is sensitive enough to feel a pea that is beneath a stack of mattresses. The princess must pass the test if there is any chance of living happily ever after. 

The cast features Lydia Borrasso as Princess Winnifred; Alyssa Angley as Lady Larken; Nancy Fereira as Queen Aggravain; Patrick Gomes as Minstrel; Kellen Joseph Quinn as Prince Dauntless; Lisa Matthews as Wizard; Mark Marco as King Sextimus; Edward Martinez as Sir Harry; and Dan Fowler as Jester.
