Studio East presents 'Once Upon a Mattress'

"Once Upon a Mattress" will be presented at Kirkland Performance Center, 350 Kirkland Avenue, Friday and Saturday, Aug. 2-3, at 7:30 pm, and Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 3-4, at 2:30 pm.
   "Once Upon a Mattress" is based on the tale of "The Princess and the Pea" and was first presented on Broadway in 1959 with Carol Burnett as Princess Winnefred (better known as "Fred.") In 1996 the show was revived on Broadway with Sarah Jessica Parker as "Fred."
   This once-upon-a-time farce is filled with great songs and crazy comedy.
   This is the fifth annual Studio East Kirkland Summer Teen Musical.
   The company includes teens from Kirkland, Bellevue, Woodinville, Bothell, Redmond and Issaquah. Tickets are $11 for adults and $9 for students and seniors, which includes the KPC box office fee.
