Recently, Diamond Fork Junior High held their school play “Once Upon a Mattress.” This play is based on the famous fairytale "The Princess and the Pea." It all started with the young Prince Harry who did everything he could to find the right bride for himself. His mother appeared as an impediment to stop him from marrying. Eventually the Princess from the swamp, nicknamed “Fred”, came before Prince Harry as the perfect bride. Will Harry’s mother stop Prince Harry and Princess Fred from becoming man and wife?
The school play took many months to prepare and many weeks of practicing to pull off. “Most days we practiced from about three o’clock to five o’clock, and the closer we got to the production we practiced four days a week,” said Camille Stephens, an eighth grade actress in the play. The cast and crew has certainly worked hard for the performances. Thank you drama department!
