'Forever Plaid' opens next week

Tri-Valley Rep presents 'goofy revue'

Tri- Valley Repertory Theatre is extending its offerings north on I-680 to present "Forever Plaid" from March 22-30 at the Village Theatre in Danville.

Tri-Valley Rep reports that the pop-rock musical, written and originally directed and choreographed by Stuart Ross, is "one of the most popular and successful musicals in recent memory. This deliciously goofy revue centers on four young, eager male singers killed in a car crash in the 1950s on the way to their first big concert, and now miraculously revived for the posthumous chance to fulfill their dreams and perform the show that never was."

This production is directed by Caleb Haven Draper, with musical direction by Evan Alparone, and Kathleen Breedveld, producer.

The four young singers emerge as the "Plaids," and they proceed to pound out lively renditions of old favorites, including "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."

The Village Theatre is located at 233 Front St. For tickets call 314-3400 or visit www.trivalleyrep.org.
