Only someone with royal blood could feel a pea beneath a pile of 40 mattresses. One princess is about to have a difficult night’s sleep in Spring Hill High School’s production of “Once Upon a Mattress.”
More than 70 SHHS students are involved in the musical production, which is based on the children’s fable, The Princess and the Pea. More than 40 students round out the cast and another 30 support the show in a variety of other roles.
The SHHS production curtains opened  on Nov. 15 in the SHHS auditorium. It will run for two other nights – Nov. 16 and Nov. 17. Tickets are $7 and can be reserved in advance by emailing Brett Buffum at [email protected] or by calling (913)592-7367.
