Forever Plaid plays in the Marian Theatre June 19 – 29, 2014, then in the Solvang Festival Theater July 4 – 27, 2014.

Relive an era when doo-wop was king, big hairdos were in, cars had enormous fins, and the harmonizing bands of the 50s were all the rage. This hallmark jukebox musical comedy by Stuart Ross centers on a quartet whose dream of recording an album ended in a bus collision while on their way to their biggest gig. Now they’ve been miraculously revived for the show that never was.

You’ll be humming along with the great nostalgic pop hits of the 1950’s and rollin’ in the aisles from the delightful patter of the original clean-cut boy band – The Plaids.

Featuring such hits as Sixteen Tons, Chain Gang, Three Coins in the Fountain, Perfidia, Cry, Catch a Falling Star, Day-O, Gotta Be This or That, Matilda, and Heart and Soul.

The Plaids get a chance to look back at their lives, and they discover that they didn’t just have wonderful lives; their lives were wonderful, because they lived them together. Together they can achieve the unimaginable, the unexplainable.

Director Erik Stein said that he is thrilled to help four genuinely nice guys bring a little happiness and harmony to a world that’s full of discord, mean reality shows, and sensationalistic news.

The cast includes Jeff Parker as Frankie, Richie Ferris as Smudge, Kyle Smith as Sparky and Nick Tubbs as Jinx.

The creative team includes Choreographer Katie Wackowski, Music Director Mark Robertshaw, Scenic Designer Dave Nofsinger, Costume Designer Alycia Matz, Lighting Designer, Jennifer ‘Z’ Zornow, Sound Designer Chuck Hatcher and Stage Manager Jessica McCoy.
