WARTS - 2013



2013  Once Upon a Mattress 


 This year, WARTS (Whitley Annual Residential Theatre Society) will be producing another fantastic, hilarious, catchy musical for your pleasure! 

With the help of more than 50 proud Whitleans, WARTS will be presenting the musical Once Upon A Mattress, which is based on the well-known fable The Princess and the Pea.

If you thought you knew how this old, old story went, 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. 

The showing dates are as follows:
Thursday 22/8/13 8:00pm - Opening Gala Night 
Friday 23/8/13 8:00pm
Saturday 24/8/13 7:30pm

The always-wonderful WARTS musical will be held at the Open Stage Theatre this year, which is on the corner of Swanston St and Grattan St. (the address is 757 Swanston St, Parkville)
