The Community Players round out their 97th season with the "heavenly" musical, Forever Plaid. A quartet of four school pals discover their mutual love of music, especially the close harmony of their idols: The Four Freshmen, The Hi-Lo's and The Crew Cuts, and soon start rehearsing their music together. Naming themselves "Forever Plaid", they are on their way to their first gig when they are broadsided by a school bus and killed (don't worry - it's a comedy!) The play begins with the wondrous Plaids returning from the afterlife for one final chance at musical glory. Take a trip back to the 1950s and rediscover the fun and music of the "guy groups" of that time, with musical favorites like Three Coins in a Fountain, Sixteen Tons, Catch a Falling Star and more.

Forever Plaid will be presented April 13-15 and 20-22 at Jenks Auditorium, 350 Division Street, Pawtucket, RI (across from McCoy Stadium). Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 pm, with Sunday matinees at 2:00 pm. Audience members attending opening night April 13th will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win tickets to Theatre by the Sea's Ain't Misbehavin' as well as dinner at the theatre's Bistro by the Sea!

Tickets for Forever Plaid are $23 for adults and $18 for students. Order e-tickets online and print them at home at www.thecommunityplayers.net or reserve at (401) 726-6860.
