The Cowley College theater department is preparing for its production of “Once Upon a Mattress” on Nov. 3-5 inside the Robert Brown Theatre.

Attendees who think they know the story of “The Princess and the Pea” might be in for a walloping surprise! Chances are they never will look at fairy tales quite the same way again.

Originally starring Carol Burnett, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic includes side-splitting shenanigans. Share in a tale of being true to oneself while overcoming obstacles and finding love simply by being who you are.

There will be performances at 7:30 each night and a special matinee performance at 2 p.m. Nov. 5.

Ticket prices are $10 for adults or $8 for students and Blue Star military families. Cowley Gold Cards will be accepted.

Tickets may be purchased with Visa, MasterCard, Discover, cash or personal check from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Cowley Box Office, located in the lobby of the Brown Center; via telephone using a credit card at (620) 441-5570; or online at

Tickets purchased online or by phone may be picked up at the box office.

Plan to attend this entertaining and inspiring show filled with colorful characters, great scenery, and laughter for all ages.
