About the Show/Event
Information for Once Upon a Matress at Upstairs at the Gatehouse, Inner London (Play). Once Upon A Mattress is a modern-day family musical based on the story of The Princess and the Pea. Winnifred, better known as Fred, is not your average princess - she's loud, independent and knows her own mind. But for her to marry Prince Dauntless, she must prove to his overprotective mother, Queen Aggravain, that she is indeed a true princess in an impossible test.
Performers Beth Burrows (Princess Winifred), Julia Faulkner (Queen Aggravain), Theo Toksvig-Stewart (Prince Dauntless), Steve Watts, Rachael Louise Miller, Matthew James Willis, John Sears, Courtney Hammond, Scott Armstrong.
