Plaza Theatre Company pleased to announce auditions for it’s upcoming production of FOREVER PLAID. Auditions are by appointment only. A Call-back audition will be held on Saturday June 9th at 9am.

ABOUT THE SHOW:

On their way to their first big concert, a singing quartet of young men – The Plaids – are killed in a car accident. Due to the alignment of space and time, The Plaids are able to return to Earth for one final concert. In between telling the stories of their lives, The Plaids perform some of the greatest hits from the 1950s including “Three Coins in a Fountain”, “Shangri-La”, “Crazy ’bout Ya Baby” and “Love Is A Many Splendoured Thing”. Once they’ve performed their one great show, The Plaid’s happily resume their journey back to Heaven.
