Relive an era when doo-wop was king, big hairdos were in, cars had enormous fins, and the harmonizing bands of the 50s were all the rage.

This hallmark jukebox musical comedy by Stuart Ross centers on a quartet whose dream of recording an album ended in a bus collision while on their way to their biggest gig. Now they've been miraculously revived for the show that never was.

You'll be humming along with the great nostalgic pop hits of the 1950's and rolling in the aisles from the delightful patter of the original boy band - The Plaids. "Forever Plaid" features such hits as Sixteen Tons, Chain Gang, Three Coins in the Fountain, Perfidia, Cry, Catch a Falling Star, Day-O, Gotta Be This or That, Matilda, and Heart and Soul.

Regional favorites Ben Welch, Jon Tyler Heath, Mikeal Macbeth and Stephen Charles Turner star as the original do-whoop boy band.
