CIP Berkshire Presents “Once Upon a Mattress” at the Spectrum Playhouse

CIP Berkshire Presents Once Upon a Mattress G2K at the Spectrum Playhouse in Lee July 14-21.

If you thought you knew the story of the Princess and the Pea you are in for a walloping surprise.

Did you know, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that Lady Larken’s love for Sir Harry provided a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal altar post haste? Or that, in fact, it wasn’t the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs with music by Mary Rodgers and lyrics by Marshall Barer, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance, written by Jay Thompson, Dean Fuller, and Barer, provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are you’ll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again!

Founded in 1984, CIP Berkshire offers support services for young adults on the Autism spectrum and with ADHD and other learning differences as they transition to college, employment, and independent living. In 2011, the Berkshire Center opened The Good Purpose Art Gallery and The Spectrum Playhouse, both which provide exciting new creative, artistic and employment opportunities for CIP students.
