Once Upon a Mattress in Broadway ONCE UPON A MATTRESS
Mount Notre Dame High School
If you thought you knew the story of 'The Princess and The Pea,' you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that Lady Larken's love for Sir Harry provided a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal altar post haste? Or that, in fact, it wasn't the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are you'll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.Music by Mary Rodgers; Book by Jay Thompson & Dean Fuller & Marshall Barer; Lyrics by Marshall BarerFor more information on Mount Notre Dame High School, click hereFor more information on Once Upon a Mattress, click here

Revel in the joy and wonder that comes only once a year with a new tradition that is extravagant, comical and overflowing with holiday spirit. From the imagination of Artistic Director and CEO Victoria Morgan, comes a festive classic boldly reenvisioned uniquely for Cincinnati. Following the astounding success of its world premiere in 2011, this holiday season Morgan may prove to have a few new tricks up her sleeve.

Cinderella in Broadway CINDERELLA
Cincinnati Landmark Productions
The timeless enchantment of a magical fairy tale is reborn with the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance. Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers & Hammerstein's CINDERELLA was the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium. Its recreation in 1965 starring Lesley Ann Warren was no less successful in transporting a new generation to the miraculous kingdom of dreams-come-true, and so was a second remake in 1997, which starred Brandy as Cinderella and Whitney Houston as her Fairy Godmother. As adapted for the stage, with great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, the hearts of children and adults alike still soar when the slipper fits.Music by Rodgers, Richard; Book by Oscar Hammerstein II; Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein IIFor more information on Cincinnati Landmark Productions, click hereFor more information on Cinderella, click here
