KUTZTOWN, PA  — More than thirty Kutztown Area School District students are busy spending their afternoons and evenings rehearsing for the 2017 musical Once Upon A Mattress, which will be performed in the high school auditorium in November.

Once Upon A Mattress is a fast-paced musical comedy adapted from the fairy tale The Princess and the Pea.  The musical draws cast members from the district’s middle and high schools, and features seniors and musical theater veterans Olivia Sica as Winnifred the Woebegone, Asher Cooper as Prince Dauntless, and Nathan Hayduk as Sir Harry.

The musical is being performed under the direction of Samantha Clarke, a graduate of Philadelphia’s University of the Arts. Ms. Clark serves as a teaching artist at Wilson High School and The Yocum Institute, and teaches and directs at Penn State Berks and Montgomery County Community College. Kutztown University student and Kutztown High graduate Megan Laudenslager is the choreographer, while Kutztown High School vocal director Julianne Michalik is the producer and vocal music director for the show.
