“Many moons ago, in a far off place…” there was a kingdom ruled by a mute king. His overbearing wife, Queen Aggravain, has taken over ruling the kingdom and has decreed that no one in the kingdom may marry until their son, Prince Dauntless, is married to a suitable princess… who is yet to be found. A quirky woman from the swamps, Princess Winnifred, must first pass the queen’s test of sensitivity to marry the prince--feeling a pea under twenty mattresses!"
This delightful musical opened on Broadway with Carol Burnett in 1959, and again with Sarah Jessica Parker in 1996.
