    February 7-9 and February 13-16, 2020
    Musical/Comedy Forever Plaid is one of the most popular and successful musicals in recent memory. This deliciously fun revue is chock-full of classic barbershop quartet harmonies and pitch-perfect melodies! The plot revolves around four young singers are that are killed in a car crash and posthumously take the stage for one final gig in this goofy, 1950s nostalgia trip.
