Captivating Princess and the Pea rendition coming to the Sid

Following the inaugural success of their 2017 production of Guys and Dolls, Three Legged Dog Productions (3LDP), the Comox Valley’s adult theatre company is back again and with another captivating show: Once Upon a Mattress.

Based on Hans Christian Andersen’s story of the Princess and the Pea, Once Upon a Mattress is a wildly entertaining story about a spectacular competition for a kingdom’s next princess – complete with overbearing mothers, unlikely heroines, completely absurd drama, and observers from across a continent and beyond.

“We were so impressed with the quantity and quality of people who wanted to be a part of 3LDP’s show this year. It makes for an incredibly exciting process of putting a show together and even more rewarding when you see it on stage. The future is bright for 3LDP!” says 3LDP President Pat McKenna.

Once Upon a Mattress will run five shows at the Sid Williams Theatre March 22-25, 2018. Tickets are now available at sidwilliamstheatre.com or at the box office.
