Forever Plaid

Forever Plaid

March 30 - April 15   |   Gyder Theater

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”.

Book by Stuart Ross, Music and Lyrics by various artists.
