Once Upon a Mattress
Morgan-Wixson Theatre presents its 17th annual youth musical, Once Upon a Mattress, Nov. 10 – Dec. 15, Saturdays and Sundays at 2pm.

Produced by Mary Beth Sciarabba & Tracy Saltzman, it will be directed/musical directed by Anne Gesling and choreographed by Jonathon Saia. Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic tale 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. Reserved Seats ($15) are available online at www.morgan-wixson.org or by calling 310-828-7519.
