Once Upon a Mattress


These events have passed, but check out our calendar for fun today, this week, this month!


From April 27-May 6, 2018, enjoy a retelling of the classic fairy tale The Princess and the Pea with a unique twist! This beloved family story comes to life on stage, where 25 local youth actors work alongside artists from NextStop’s professional company.

The meek Prince Dauntless is looking for a bride, but none is quite good enough for his domineering mother, Queen Aggravain. Bring the whole family to see what happens when Winnifred the Woebegone arrives from the swamps to fill the kingdom’s opening for a princess ASAP.
