Curtains Up Pagosa to present ‘Once Upon a Mattress’ June 12-16


Curtains Up Pagosa is showing “Once Upon a Mattress” on June 12-16. 

This golden age musical features more than 40 of our local talent of all ages in the cast, as well as many local musicians in our orchestra. 

The story being a comedic adaptation of Hans Christian Anderson’s “The Princess and the Pea” tells the story of Queen Aggravain and her antics as she tries to prevent her son, Prince Dauntleas the Drab, from marrying Princess Winnifred, also known as Fred. 

With a mute king, a manipulative queen, a droopy prince and a cast full of crazies, what could possibly go wrong? 

Come out to the Pagosa Springs High School June 12-15, at 7 p.m. or June 16, at 2 p.m. to see our amazing cast and crew as they take us back to the medieval times for this classic fairytale.
