A Musical showing Jul 23 2013 - Aug 07 2013
Forever Plaid is an affectionate homage to the close-harmony male singers of the 1950s. Audiences will delight in the all-new staging of this deliciously goofy musical review. The “Plaids” are four young, eager male singers who never made it to their first big gig due to a fatal car crash. Returning from the afterlife, they are given a chance to fulfill their dreams and finally perform the show that never was. You’ll delight in their beautiful harmony and boyish squabbling over their charmingly outlandish choreography — performed with over-zealous precision. Stroll down memory lane with this guaranteed smash featuring pop classics and clever patter that will have you rolling in the aisles — when you’re not humming along with the great nostalgic pop hits.
