(HACKETTSTOWN, NJ) -- Centenary Stage Company will kick off its 2020 Summer Musical Theatre Series with Forever Plaid. The production runs July 9 through July 19 in the Sitnik Theatre of the Lackland Performing Arts Center in Hackettstown. The musical takes place once upon a time when four guys - Sparky, Smudge, Jinx and Frankie - discovered they shared a love for music and banded together to become as great as their former idols.
Rehearsing in the basement of a plumbing supply company, the quartet dubbed themselves "Forever Plaid". On the way to their first big gig, the "Plaids" were broadsided by a school bus and killed instantly. It is at this moment, when their careers and lives ended, the story of Forever Plaid begins....
Forever Plaid, one of the most popular and successful musicals in recent memory, is a deliciously fun revue, chock-full of classic barbershop quartet harmonies and pitch-perfect melodies. Forever Plaid was originally written, directed and choreographed by Stuart Ross, with musical continuity supervision and arrangements by James Raitt. It is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
Centenary Stage Company’s production of Forever Plaid runs July 9 through July 19 in the Sitnik Theatre of the Lackland Performing Arts Center at 715 Grand Ave. Hackettstown, NJ on the campus of Centenary University.
