CROSSVILLE, TN – March 25, 2019 – 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 as the musical comedy Forever Plaid is performed March 29 to May 24 in the Adventure Theater at the Cumberland County Playhouse.
This landmark jukebox musical comedy by Stuart Ross is the goofy and charming story of The Plaids, a clean-cut 1950s, all-male singing group who return from the afterlife to perform the show they never got to when they were alive.
Audiences will be rolling in the aisles and tapping their toes as The Plaids are miraculously revived to perform the concert that 'never was' in the hilariously nostalgic musical. They perform precision harmonies, squabble boyishly and execute their delightfully outlandish choreography with precision.
The Plaids perform some of the greatest hits of the 1950s: “Catch a Falling Star,” “Three Coins in the Fountain,” “Love Is a Many Splendored Thing,” “Cry,” and “Heart and Soul.”
The Plaids get a chance to look back at their lives, and discover that they didn’t just have wonderful lives; their lives were wonderful because they lived them together.
Forever Plaid is rated G, and is co-sponsored by Beltone Hearing Aid Center and Bilbrey Funeral Home.
