     By request Black Cat Theater is holding an additional night for auditions for their Fall production of ONCE UPON A MATTRESS directed by Stephanie Flinker with Alexa Flinker as Music Director. We will be putting a new twist to this iconic show in that it will be an all adult cast (ages 19-90+) only. Auditions for this show will be held on Wednesday, May 29th at 6:00pm in Kidder Hall, All Saints Church, 7 Woodbridge Street, South Hadley.

     All roles are open. (For synopsis scroll to bottom.) Interested candidates should bring with them a short biographical sketch (headshot optional) and be prepared to perform a short musical piece. There may also be readings from the script.

PRINCESS WINIFRED:

     “Shy” (meas. 25-78)

PRINCE DAUNTLESS:

     “Song of Love” (meas. 24-72 – all of the melody including chorus)

SYNOPSIS:

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 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, 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.
