Once Upon a Mattress

Music by Mary Rodgers
Lyrics by Marshall Barer
Book by Jay Thompson, Dean Fuller, and Marshall Barer
Directed by Craig A. Humphrey
Musical Direction by Holly Knott
Williams Theatre

Feb. 22, 23, 28, Mar. 1, 2, 2019        8:00 p.m.
Feb. 24     2:00 p.m.

If you thought you knew the story of the “The Princess and the Pea,” you’re in for an eye-opening surprise. The disheveled Princess Winnifred the Woebegone (made famous by Carol Burnett) is not your typical princess and her soon-to-be husband Prince Dauntless the Drab, not your typical prince! His mother, Queen Aggravain, is determined to shut this wedding down while the ladies-in-waiting of the court need the Prince to marry first so they can tie-the-knot.  Carried along on a wave of vaudeville turns, sprightly dancing, insinuating jokes and raucous and romantic songs, Once Upon a Mattress provides non-stop, side-splitting shenanigans.

 

The Last Days of Judas Iscariot

By Stephen Adly Guirgis
Directed by Mark Ridgeway
Williams Theatre

April 19, 20, 24, 25, 26, 27, 2019      8:00 p.m.

How much do most people actually know about the disciple Judas Iscariot beyond his betrayal of Jesus and his having hanged himself?  Playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis places this infamous man on trial in purgatory allowing historical figures like Pontius Pilate, Mother Teresa, and Sigmund Freud to take the witness stand in this hilarious, often irreverent, and certainly penetrating look at this man.  A host of other characters including Jesus, Satan, Saint Monica, and Henrietta Iscariot (Judas’ mother) help to challenge our perceptions of judgment and forgiveness during this fascinating journey through the uproarious and thought-provoking trial of Judas Iscariot.
