Forever Plaid is one of the most popular and successful musicals in recent memory. This deliciously fun revue is chock-full of close harmonies and pitch-perfect melodies reminiscent of the Four Freshmen and the Four Aces!
Once upon a time, there were four guys (Sparky, Smudge, Jinx and Frankie) who discovered that they shared a love for music and then got together to become their idols – The Four Freshman, The Hi-Lo’s and The Crew Cuts. Rehearsing in the basement of Smudge’s family’s plumbing supply company, they became “Forever Plaid”. On the way to their first big gig, the “Plaids” are broadsided by a school bus and killed instantly. It is at the moment when their careers and lives end that the story of Forever Plaid begins….
Singing in close harmony, squabbling boyishly over the smallest intonations and executing their charmingly outlandish choreography with overzealous precision, the “Plaids” are a guaranteed to please, with a program of beloved songs and delightful patter that will keep you rolling in the aisles when you’re not humming along to some of the great nostalgic pop hits of the 1950s.
Making his debut at Timber Lake Playhouse, director Gregory Daniels is Head of Dance at Baldwin-Wallace University.
