All Plaid out at Tigard theater

November 26, 2013 by  

Starting tomorrow, Plaid Tidings is a holiday comedy performance filled with the Christmas spirit by a group of boys influenced by bands from back in the 1960s. Directed and choreographed by Dan Murphy, it would not be surprising if flyer printing had been among the methods used to spread the word about this exciting comedy event and the music that accompanies it.

In the performance, the smartly-dressed quartet of singers are brought back to Earth for a posthumous performance, after being summoned with a phone call from Rosemary Clooney. Through the phone conversation, Rosemary tells them that they are desperately needed to bring a little of the holiday harmony back to a world that lacks it.

During this performance, the boys will play music from the 50s and 60s in the uproarious fashion of The Ed Sullivan show. Also part of the show will be the Rocketts, the Vienna Boys Choir, the Chipmunks. Musical direction is by Jeffery Childs, and the characters are played by Matthew Brown, Robert Head, Sean Powell, and Jeremy Sloan. For any fans of music from the era, or simply anyone in need of some holiday cheers, this looks set to be a must-see.

Tickets begin at $30, depending on seating selected. Plaid Tidings will be performed from Wednesday, November 27 to Sunday, December 22 at 7:30 pm at the New Stage Theatre located at 12850 S. W. Grant Avenue in Tigard, Oregon. To find out more about this production, or to purchase tickets, please visit the New Stage Theatre website or call the box office at 503-620-5262.
