Once Upon a Mattress..........

For two terms, everyone in Years 7 and 8 has been working on and polishing our school production, “Once Upon a Mattress.” This is a twist on the original fairytale “The Princess and the Pea.” It is set in the Middle Ages, in a castle. In this fractured fairytale, Prince Dauntless is restricted from marrying anyone he wants. With every princess who wants to marry the Prince, the Queen sets an impossible test for them to complete. So Sir Harry goes on a perilous journey to find a Princess. He successfully finds, in the Swamp Kingdom, a fun, quirky and positive Princess Winnifred.
Here we are rehearsing the finale. Come and see us on July 4 or 5 at the Aurora Centre at Burnside High! It will be a great show. Keep an eye on the Selwyn House Website for tickets sales!
