ONCE UPON A MATTRESS
This beloved musical spoof on the "Princess and the Pea" will tickle your funny bone, and have you singing "Shy" and dancing the "Spanish Panic" out the door! YMTC's fabulously talented young cast and production team bring you the wacky, colorful, slightly off-center world of Princess Winifred, Prince Dauntless, Sir Harry, Lady Larken and the rest of the grand court of Queen Aggravain and King Sextimus the Silent.
YMTC (Youth Musical Theater Company) is a Berkeley-based company that provides exceptional musical theater training and performance opportunities to passionate, talented young people. In year-round, rigorous programming including intensive workshops, small-scale performances, and three fully mounted musical productions, students from the seventh grade up to the university level, work under the guidance of professional musicians, designers, and theater artists from around the Bay Area.
From the time it incorporated as a non-profit in 2004, YMTC has enjoyed tremendous community and volunteer support, student enthusiasm and growing recognition of the professional caliber of our shows and the high quality of our workshops. Many of our students go on to prestigious university theater programs around the country; all of them, wherever they go, take with them confidence, empathy, responsibility, and the capacity to imagine. We passionately believe that when young people have opportunities to participate in exceptional training in the arts, they are becoming not only the next generation of artists and arts appreciators, but the next generation of engaged citizens: empowered to pay attention, communicate, and energetically participate in a collaborative process.
