Farmington High School will present 'Once Upon a Mattress' this weekend


There is always a story behind the story. As it turns out, this week's Farmington High School musical production of "Once Upon a Mattress" actually has two.

Under the direction of FHS English teacher Maria Capecchi, "Once Upon a Mattress" tells the story, of sorts, of how a princess happened to be sleeping on a pile of mattresses and feeling a pea at the bottom in the famous fairytale, The Princess and the Pea.
