Once Upon A Mattress
Thursday, June 17, 2010, 8pm
Fitzpatrick Auditorium
Kernersville Elementary School
If you thought you knew the story of "The Princess and The Pea," you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that Lady Larken's love for Sir Harry provided a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal altar post haste? Or that, in fact, it wasn't the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are you'll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.

Whether the parents stay at home or not the entertaining thing is only possible when the kid will find his type of enjoyment like games with his friends or playing some indoor games on him himself. Either girls or boys this thing is the same for all. Now if it is possible to play indoor games but the play will be equal to out door games in terms of enjoyment and entertainment then the kid will be happily stays at home. In that case the kids websites can be of a great help to manage such situations. The idea is that when you need to go out for your job you can keep your kid in the custody of the governess or the babysitter and to provide some entertainment along with education you can let them log in some kids website so that they can enjoy the time.
