ATTENTION ALL HIGH SCHOOLERS! This is the Cincinnati Summer Camp you don’t want to miss; a full production of Once Upon A Mattress.  Come join students from all over Cincinnati for this intensive two-week camp, make new friends and learn from theatre professions from Cincinnati to Broadway.  During this dynamic two-week camp, you will experience many aspects of theatre including workshops in Stage Combat, Audition Techniques, Vocal Health, Acting, Choreography and more!  Ensemble performers will be challenged to master complex music, choreography and follow professional direction. This will be a great and challenging experience for students with some acting experience, students interested in professional acting, or students who are currently pursuing acting careers. The camp will culminate with two performances of Once Upon A Mattress.

If you thought you knew the story of ‘The Princess and The Pea,’ you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that it may not have been the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of beguiling songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic 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.
