Red Curtain Foundation for the Arts
About the project and the company
Red Curtain announces auditions for “Once Upon a Mattress,” directed by Scott B Randall.
In a faraway kingdom, long ago, dear King Sextimus has been cursed to be mute, and his terror-of-a-wife, Queen Aggravain, has taken over control of the kingdom. In an attempt to keep their son, Prince Dauntless, single, she has decreed that only a true princess—one that can pass her “purity” test—may marry her son. Nor can anyone else in the kingdom marry until the Prince does. The other nobles are extremely troubled by this decree, especially Lady Larken and Sir Harry, as they are expecting a baby.
Luckily, Sir Harry is able to find an amazing yet unconventional princess, Winnifred the Woebegone. She instantly catches the attention of Prince Dauntless, and in the end, is able to pass the Queen’s supposedly impassable sensitivity test. Based on the fairy tale, “The Princess and the Pea,” Mary Rodger’s classic Once Upon A Mattress is a delightful musical that has become a fan favorite in theatres everywhere!
Red Curtain is a non-profit community theatre. There is no pay offered for actors.
