Suitable for the whole family, Once Upon a Mattress continues Ickle Pickle Productions January school holiday tradition since 2005.

The story begins in a faraway kingdom long ago. Due to an unhappy curse, the King is unable to speak. Meanwhile, his wife, Queen Aggravain, has taken over control of the kingdom. Most importantly, in an attempt to keep Prince Dauntless single, she has decreed that only the princess that can pass her test may marry her son. Further, no one else in the kingdom may marry until Prince Dauntless does.

Luckily, Sir Harry is able to find an amazing princess, Winnifred the Woebegone. She instantly catches the attention of Prince Dauntless, and in the end, is able to pass the Queen's supposedly impassable sensitivity test. When the Queen still tries to prevent the Prince Dauntless from marrying, the curse on the King is broken. Now able to speak, the King regains his rightful position as leader of the kingdom, and all is well!
