FOREVER PLAID is Now Playing at PlazaCo – A Study in Plaid

NOW PLAYING on the PlazaCo stage thru September 8th – the charming, funny, romantic musical comedy FOREVER PLAID!

WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

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 1950’s and 60’s 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.

WHEN DOES IT PLAY?

The show plays every Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening at 7:30pm with Saturday matinees every Saturday afternoon at 3pm.

HOW DO I GET TICKETS?
