Once Upon a Mattress

The latest Westland High School and Community production at the Regent Theatre 16 – 19 October 2019.

In 15th-Century Europe a dysfunctional kingdom is ruled by the devious Queen Aggravain and the mute King Sextimus the Silent. King Sextimus suffers from a curse that can only be reversed “when the mouse devours the hawk.”

Twelve princesses have been tested to see if they are worthy of marrying Prince Dauntless the Drab, but none of them have managed to pass the Queen’s slanted tests. Prince Dauntless’s best bud Sir Harry travels far and wide and finds Princess Winnifred the Woebegone.

A rush is on to marry the prince off as Sir Harry and Lady Larken have a bun in the oven and its ready to pop. Will Winnifred pass the test? Will she help break the curse? Why is the king chasing the chambermaid? And who on earth let the Wizard out? Come on a crazy journey to help find Prince Dauntless a wife and set the townsfolk free.

Don’t miss out on watching this latest Westland High School production, featuring students and the wider community. Tickets can be bought from the Regent Theatre.
