Hello. Have you heard of Mary Rodgers’ Once Upon a Mattress? It premiered on Broadway in 1959 starring Carol Burnett as Princess Winifred. The musical is a popular choice for high school productions and is a delicious comedy with some great comedic numbers including “Shy”, “Sensitivity”, Happily Ever After” and “Man to Man Talk”.
