Press Release (PressBurner) Mar 04, 2011 - Rochester, NY - Isle of Enchantments announced that they are the proud sponsor of this year's Greece Olympia Music Theatre production of Once Upon a Mattress. The Broadway favorite is an adaptation of Hans Christian Anderson's The Princess and the Pea will be performed and staged by more than 110 talented High School students. With music and Lyrics by Mary Rodgers and Marshall Barer, Once Upon a Mattress ia a hilarious, raucous, and romantic tale you don't want to miss.
Greece Olympia Alum and owner of Isle of Enchantments, Shawna Weidenbach, believes that supporting The Arts is especially important in this difficult economy. "The budget gap for the Greece Central School district is projected to be around $5 million this year. Cuts will, more than likely, be made to avoid a tax hike, and that could mean damaging cuts to Music & Drama departments," said Weidenbach. She goes on to say "These kids put an unbelievable amount of work into these productions. They take great pride in what they're doing, and I think we, as a community, should support them in any way we can, even if it's just taking a few hours to come and see the finished product."
Performances are March 24 at 7:00 p.m., March 25 at 7:00 p.m., March 26 at 1:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. in the Greece Olympia High School auditorium located at 1139 Maiden Lane, in the town of Greece. Reserved seat tickets are available at all area Wegmans for $9, tickets at the door (if available) are $10.For more information, visit Greece Olympia Music Theatre’s website at: http://web001.greece.k12.ny.us/olympia-high.cfm?subpage=32575
