Once upon a time, there were four guys (Sparky, Smudge, Jinx and Frankie) who loved to sing. They all met in high school when they joined the audiovisual club (1956). Discovering they shared an affection for music and entertaining, they got together and dreamed of becoming like their idols—the Four Aces, the Four Lads, the Four Freshmen, the Hi-los and the Crew Cuts. Through this they became Forever Plaid.

Although the new sound, rock ’n’ roll, was quickly overtaking the sounds of the forties and fifties, the Plaids believed in their music. They landed their first big gig at the Airport Hilton cocktail bar—the Fusel Lounge.

On February 9, 1964 they were driving in their cherry-red 1954 Mercury convertible and rehearsing their big finale when they were slammed broadside by a school bus filled with eager Catholic teens. The teens were on their way to witness the Beatles make their U.S. television debut on the Ed Sullivan Show and miraculously escaped injury. The members of Forever Plaid were killed instantly. It is at that moment, when their careers and lives ended, and the story of Forever Plaid begins.

Through the power of Harmony and the Expanding Holes in the Ozone Layer, they have been allowed to come back to perform the show they never got to do in life.
And, after completing their Mission of Harmony, our men in plaid must return to the cosmos. Hopefully, through this production, their dreams will live on forever.

Hear their renditions of such timeless classics as: "Three Coins in the Fountain"; "Undecided"; "Gotta Be This or That"; "Moments to Remember"; "Crazy 'Bout Ya, Baby"; "No, Not Much"; "Sixteen Tons"; "Chain Gang"; "Perfidia"; "Cry"; "Heart and Soul"; "Lady of Spain"; "Scotland the Brave"; "Shangri-La"; "Rags to Riches"; and "Love is a Many-Splendored Thing".
