Once Upon a Mattress is essentially the fable of 'The Princess and the Pea' set to music... and marked Carol Burnett's Broadway debut as the comical Winnifred. It featured a score by Mary Rodgers and Marshall Barer. George Becker knew the story line was perfect for a Will Rogers' school drama. 'They're going to love it!,' he thought. The audience wasn't going to get bored with it and they'll have a great laugh.'
George Becker put together a great cast. What a treat it was to see an ensemble of young adults work this well together!
