Coming in April: FOREVER PLAID!
We round out our 97th season with the “heavenly” musical, Forever Plaid. A quartet of four school pals discover their mutual love of music, especially the close harmony of their idols: The Four Freshmen, The Hi-Lo’s and The Crew Cuts, and soon start rehearsing their music together. Naming themselves “Forever Plaid”, they are on their way to their first gig when they are broadsided by a school bus and killed (don’t worry – it’s a comedy!) The play begins with the wondrous Plaids returning from the afterlife for one final chance at musical glory. Take a trip back to the 1950s and rediscover the fun and music of the “guy groups” of that time, with musical favorites like Three Coins in a Fountain, Sixteen Tons, Catch a Falling Star and more.
Directed by Andrew g. Bobola, with musical direction by Ron Procopio, Forever Plaid stars Joseph Catanzaro, Matt Fagan, Nicholas Mercurio and Daniel Thompson.
Forever Plaid will be presented April 13-15 and 20-22 at Jenks Auditorium, 350 Division Street, Pawtucket, RI (across from McCoy Stadium). Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 pm, with Sunday matinees at 2:00 pm.
