Plaid Tidings — A Special Holiday Edition of Forever Plaid continues the story of the singing group whose lives were lost in an accident involving a busload of teens en route to see “The Ed Sullivan Show.” Encouraged by a heavenly phone call from Rosemary Clooney, the high-spirited boys of Forever Plaid –Frankie, Sparky, Jinx and Smudge –are transported from the ethereal cosmos to stage a nostalgic holiday extravaganza for world-weary mortals on Earth. Stuffed with such “Plaid-erized” Christmas standards as “Mr. Santa,” “Let It Snow,” “Christmas Calypso,” “The Holiday Catering Drill,” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” Plaid Tidings is one holiday treat that is truly heaven-sent.
Grove Artistic Director Michael Marone directs Plaid Tidings with musical direction by Hollie Major. The cast features David Baker as Jinx, Brandon Frashefski as Frankie, Michael Marone as Sparky, and Christopher LaFrance as Smudge.
