Once Upon a Mattress tells the tale of Princess Winnifred and her quest to wed Prince Dauntless, son of silent King Sextimus and domineering Queen Aggravain. Since the Queen doesn't really want to lose her precious little boy, she devises a "Sensitivity" test that Winnifred must pass. The princess must try to sleep atop 20 mattresses, beneath which a single pea has been placed. Over 70 New Trier High School Juniors and Seniors comprise a company of "singing and dancing ladies and knights in a magical kingdom that has an opening for a Princess,"
