CHESTER and MIDLOTHIAN, Va. – The community is invited to join us in April, as the curtain goes up at The Lynn Theatre on John Tyler Community College’s theatre program’s spring musical, Once Upon a Mattress. In this fun and contemporary take on the classic fairytale the Princess and the Pea, we follow the journey of the courageous Princess Winnifred as she comes to the rescue of a kingdom in need of a new outlook on life and love. This family-friendly comedic musical is sure to have audience-goers of all ages laughing and even humming along with the show’s tunes.

Once Upon a Mattress show dates are April 4, April 5, April 6, April 11, April 12, and April 13. All performances begin at 7:00 p.m. in The Lynn Theatre located inside the T Building on Tyler’s Midlothian Campus (800 Charter Colony Pkwy.). Tickets are $10 per person. Current Tyler students are free with a valid student ID.

In addition, Tyler alumni are invited to join us before the show on April 12 for an Alumni Night at the Theatre. The reception will begin at 5:30 p.m. on the third floor terrace of the T Building. Admission to the Alumni Night reception is free. A cash bar will be available. Tickets to Once Upon a Mattress may be purchased in advance or at the box office the evening of the show.
