Carol Burnett’s star vehicle was a little-
known show called Once Upon A Mattress, a
comedic, musical adaptation of Hans Christian

the Pea.” (Music by Mary Rodgers; Lyrics by
Marshall Barer; Book by Jay Thompson, Dean
Fuller, and Marshall Barer) If you think you
know the story of the Princess and the Pea, you
may be in for a walloping surprise! C.R.O.W. is

more as “The Minstrel,” “The Jester,” and “The

miss this show!” Tickets will be available soon
