Standing Ovation

The Spotlight Players performed the musical, “Once Upon a Mattress,” on VIP Night for the faculty and their families. The musical is a spin off of the children’s story “The Princess and the Pea”.


VIP Night took place on Wed., April 19, the day before the musical’s opening night. The cast uses VIP Night as a final dress rehearsal, but also gets a good feel for the show with an audience watching them.

 “VIP Night went very well. It was the first time we went through the entire show without making any major mistakes,” senior Gea Henry said. “It was a really nice experience because having an audience makes us want to perform better. I’m very proud of the cast and crew for how they performed.”
