'Forever Plaid' coming to Veale Creek

Musical follows 50s harmony group for one last peformance

(Continued)

“You also get to know the Plaids through their personal memories,” Ryan said.

Many of the songs the Plaids sing on stage will be ones that people will remember, including “Sixteen Tons,” “Three Coins in a Fountain,” “Lady of Spain,” “Chain Gang,” and others that fans of that era liked.

“It’s going to be more of a memories ride for a lot of our audience,” Griffith said. “The music is very familiar. It will take them on a memory journey.”

And this is a musical that fans of musicals will also enjoy.

“I think it will be a show people will remember,” Pancake said. “I think the people who enjoy shows will like it and people who go to musicals more will like it because of the challenging aspects of it.”

“Plaid” was created as an off-Broadway musical in 1990 by Stuart Ross. It has been performed internationally and has been one that Wadsworth has been wanting to do for a while.

“It reminded me of the ‘Nunsense’ shows that I have been in and I thought it might be different to do a male (musical),” Wadsworth said.

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased in advance at Hibbett Sports, 120 Cherry Tree Plaza. Shows start at 7:30 p.m. during the week and a 2 p.m. matinee on Aug. 4.
