She’s not your Disney princess…

Eagles Theatre presents the musical Once Upon a Mattress, which director and theatre teacher Abra Chusid says is a story about a princess who “is not your Disney princess.” This hilarious satire of the fairy tale “The Princess and the Pea” unites the hard work of the more than 150 students on the cast and crew and in the pit orchestra. View the complete list below.

Purchase tickets online at or in the main office during school hours. The price is $5 for students and seniors and $7 for adults.

Each performance welcomes a special guest from the Lakes staff. Below are the performance dates and the special guests:

Friday, March 3 at 7 p.m. featuring special guest Mrs. Nix

Saturday, March 4 at 7 p.m. featuring special guest Mrs. Bowen

Sunday, March 5 at 2 p.m. featuring special guest Mr. Phelan

Saturday, March 11 at 2 p.m. featuring special guest Mrs. Adams

Saturday, March 11 at 7 p.m. featuring special guest Ms. Harrington

Chusid says audiences of all ages will enjoy the musical, which is “full of catchy songs and laugh out loud characters.”
