Once Upon A Mattress (1972)


 Ron FieldDave Powers


 Carol BurnettKen BerryJack Gilford
The second television adaptation was broadcast on December 12, 1972, on CBS. This production, videotaped in color, included original Broadway cast members Burnett, Gilford and White, and also featured Bernadette Peters as Lady Larken, Ken Berry as Prince Dauntless, Ron Husmann as Harry, and Wally Cox as The Jester. Again, several songs were eliminated and characters were combined or altered. Since the parts of the Minstrel and the Wizard were cut from this adaptation, a new prologue was written with Burnett singing "Many Moons Ago" as a bedtime story.

  1. Classic musical comedy! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Oct 23rd 2020

    I purchased this to use to teach a theater class for international students who speak Chinese. It has been wonderful for that purpose and delightful to watch over and over. What makes it work so well is that the story is based on a very simple folk tale: The Princess and the Pea, so it is easy to show students the relationship between the original story and the play. Not only that, but the actors enunciate, making their words accessible to non-native speakers, and the humor transcends culture and is funny without obscenities. The production on a real stage before a real audience allows me to find examples of different staging techniques. And then there's Carol Burnett. Need I say more?
