From The 2.A Office
The Highland Players will open
their 1963-64 season with a pre-
sentatlo of the delightfully soph
isticated musical comedy “Once
Upon a Mattress” on the even
ings of October 23rd - 26th, in the
Liberal Arts Auditorium.
The musical opens with a pro
logue by the Minstrel (David
Johnson) explaining the familar
“Princess and the Pea” fairy
tale. He then sets out to narrate
the actual story. King Sextimus
(Richard McCord) is under the
curse of a witch never to speak
until “the Mouse devours the
Hawk.” Queen Agravain (Sarah
Alex Bradbury) has taken over
the throne and decreed that “no
one shall wed ‘til Prince Daunt
less (Heath Rada) shares his
marriage bed.” And the Queen
is determined he shall remain
single. The Royalty Test has
been given to eleven contenders
for Dauntless’ hand and true to
form each has been dismissed
on said claim of illegal right to
the royal blue.
A prospective bride (Carolyn
Clark) is at this time being given
the test and has reached the
seventh plateau. But alas! alack!
Prir.cess No, 12 fails. Thus there
is an opening for a princess once
In the meanwhile LadyLarken’s
(Sue Scarborough) lover Sir
Harry has found another conten
der. Her name is Princess Winni-
fred (Mary Elizabeth Cobb). This
princess from “the land of the
foggy, foggy dew” is definitely
lacking in courtly graces but wins
the affection of the court, Al.
though Harry has her papers, the
Queen is determined to discredit
her and sets about with the Wi
zard to do so.
A wild Ball--complete with op
ium and the Spanish Panic is
planned. The Royalty Test? It
is being prepared.
