Roxy Regional Theatre Presents PLAID TIDINGS for the Holidays, 11/29-12/14
You'll be dreaming of a "Plaid" Christmas this holiday season when the boys from Forever Plaid return to the Roxy Regional Theatre! At first Frankie, Jinx, Smudge and Sparky aren't sure why they've returned to Earth for another posthumous performance, but a phone call from the heavenly Rosemary Clooney lets them know that they're needed to put a little four-part harmony into a discordant holiday.
PLAID TIDINGS opens Friday, November 29, for the Roxy's traditional pay-what-you-can preview. All tickets not pre-sold at the regular ticket price will go on sale at 7:30pm that evening for whatever price patrons wish to pay.
Reprising their roles from 2010's production of Forever Plaid are Ryan Bowie as Jinx and Josh Bernaski as Sparky. Michael Spaziani as Frankie and RJ Magee as Smudge complete the quartet. Accompanied by Tom Thayer on piano and John Waddle on bass, the boys will get you in the holiday spirit with such "Plaid-erized" Christmas standards as "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," "Carol of the Bells," "Let It Snow" and "I'll Be Home for Christmas," alongside hit favorites "Mambo Italiano," "Hey There," "Besame Mucho" and "Fever."
On Thursday, December 12, patrons can ring in the season with the Roxy's third annual "Christmas Over The Cumberland," featuring a holiday dinner by The Bound'ry at 5pm at F&M Bank's Franklin Room, followed by the 7pm performance of PLAID TIDINGS. Included in the evening's menu are Rib Roast, Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Carrots and Parsnips, Herb-Roasted Potatoes, Yorkshire Pudding, Cranberry Sauce, Fresh-Baked Breads, and Chef's Choice Dessert. Tickets are $50.
PLAID TIDINGS is produced in part by F&M Bank and Orgain Building Supply, along with Linda Nichols and Jim Marshall. Additional funding support has been provided by Dr. Ernest & Joan DeWald, James & Christa Holleman, and Melissa A. Schaffner.
PLAID TIDINGS runs November 29 through December 14, playing Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7pm and Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, with a 2pm matinee on Saturday, December 7. Tickets are $25 (adults) and $15 (ages 13 and under) and may be purchased online at www.roxyregionaltheatre.org, by phone at (931)645-7699, or at the theatre during regular box office hours (9am to 2pm, Monday through Friday, and one hour prior to curtain). APSU students, active-duty military and CitySaver coupon holders can receive two tickets for the price of one to Wednesday and Thursday 7pm performances.
