Belfast Maskers' summer musical comedy “Once Upon a Mattress” has final performances Thursday through Saturday, July 24 through 26, at 7 p.m. at Belfast Area High School, 98 Waldo Ave.

The show by Mary Rodgers, Marshall Barer, Jay Thompson and Dean Fuller is an over-the-top retelling of classic fable “The Princess and the Pea.” It debuted in 1959 and made entertainment icon Carol Burnett an overnight star.

Tickets are sold only at the door (cash or check), $15 for teens and adults; and $10 for children younger than 13. For more information, call 930-7090 or visit
