Question: Why did you audition for Once Upon a Mattress?

Q: What words would you use to describe Lady Larken?
K.W.: She’s bubbly, excited and ditzy.
Q: What is Lady Larken's main goal?
O.D.: She wants to get married to Sir Harry so she doesn’t have to raise a baby by herself.
Q: What do you think audiences will most remember about this production?
O.D.: I think it’ll be a good time, there will be good laughs and it’s a fun way to enjoy a night out.
