10 October – 3 November – Pieter Toerien’s Montecasino Theatre
6 November – 23 November – Theatre on the Bay
When four young singers are killed in a car crash, they posthumously take the stage for one final gig in this hilariously goofy 1950s nostalgia trip.
Forever Plaid is one of the most popular and successful jukebox musicals in recent memory, featuring such hits as CATCH A FALLING STAR, CRAZY ‘BOUT YA BABY, PERFIDIA, LOVE IS A MANY SPLENDORED THING, HEART AND SOUL and many more. This deliciously fun revue is chock-full of classic barbershop quartet harmonies and pitch-perfect melodies!
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 smash, with a program of beloved songs and delightful patter that keeps audiences rolling in the aisles when they’re not humming along to some of the great nostalgic pop hits of the 1950s.
Running Time: 100min inclusive of 20min interval.
Family Friendly – no age restriction
