Mary Jo Alsip directs Stuart Ross' "Forever Plaid" at Chickasaw Civic Theatre December 4-6 and 11-13, 2015
"Forever Plaid" is the story of an all-male singing group, just about to make it big. But, unfortunately, on their way to perform at the Airport Hilton's Fusel Lounge, their cherry-red Mercury convertible is broadsided by a busload of teens on their way to hear the Beatles debut on the Ed Sullivan Show. And all four members of The Plaids are killed, cutting short their dream of bringing peace and harmony to the world through their music.
But wait--there's more.
The Plaids return from the afterlife—their one last chance to return to Earth to complete their mission of harmony through the music they've been honing for years--"Three Coins in a Fountain,” “Catch a Falling Star," “Perfidia,” “Love is a Many-Splendored Thing”—the music that was the heart and soul of the 1950s.
The Plaids are played by Steve Alsip as Sparky, Timothy Tolar as Jinx, Ian Weaver as Francis and Scott Wright as Smudge.
