FHS to present Once Upon a Mattress
Once upon a time, Queen Aggravain decreed that no couples could marry until her son, Prince Dauntless, found a bride. Dozens of princesses tried to win the prince's hand, but none could pass the queen's impossible tests. Then a "shy" swamp princess, Winnifred the Woebegone, showed up.
Franklin High School Drama Club will present Once Upon a Mattress, a hilarious musical treatment of the classic tale of the princess and the pea, on April 22 and 23 at 7 p.m. and April 24 at 2 p.m. All performances will be in the FHS McDade Auditorium. 
Tickets are $10 for adults; $8 for seniors; and $5 for students. They're available for purchase online at or at the door. 
Once Upon a Mattress's music is by Mary Rodgers and lyrics are by Marshall Barer. The book is by Jay Thompson, Dean Fuller, and Marshall Barer.
Franklin High School is at 750 E. 4th St.
