County Players opens its 55th season with Forever Plaid on Friday, September 7 at 8:00 p.m. With music arrangements by James Raitt, music and lyrics written by various artists and book by Stuart Ross, Forever Plaid is an affectionate musical homage to the close-harmony ‘guy groups’ that reached the height of their popularity during the 1950s. This quartet of high-school chums, and their earnest dreams of recording an album, ended (symbolically, and even literally) in death, when their cherry red ‘54 Mercury collided with a bus filled with Catholic schoolgirls on their way to see the Beatles’ American debut on The Ed Sullivan Show. The girls were fine. The play begins with the wondrous and wondering Plaids returning from the afterlife for one final chance at musical glory.
Anna Marie Paolercio directs this wonderful musical, with musical direction by Joel Flowers. Rounding out the cast is Brian Bailey, Jim Nurre, Eric Wilson and Jarek Zabczynski.
