Forever Plaid is forever good

I was invited to the Littleton Town Hall Arts Center Theatre last night for the beloved musical,Forever Plaid.”   The stage is intimate and cozy and so is  downtown Littleton. What a quaint, little  mecca Littleton is.

Last night’s performance of this favorite 1950’s era show was delightfully fun, well choreographed and the casting superb. Frankie, played by Mark Middlebrooks; Jinx, Barret Harper; Smudge, Jacob Villareal; Sparky, Tim Howard, made up  the four Plaids . Each in their own right exuded the polish and talent of  well-trained, experienced performers. Musical Director and pianist, Donna Debreceni,  pounded the ivories  with pizzaz  and was accompanied by Austin Hein on the Bass. The small ensemble was tight including the singers who took control of the stage, the vocals and shananigans . The re-enacted Ed Sullivan Show was a hoot.  It was a fun evening.

 Get acquainted with Littleton and sing your heart out to Crazy Bout  Ya Baby, Sixteen Tons, Catch a Falling Star, Caribbean Plaid (Day Oh song), Shangri-La, Rags to Riches , Love is a Many Splendored Thing, among others. As we were leaving humming and singing softly, our aisle companion looked at us, smiled and shrugged, “These were all the songs we listened to in college.” Bless her heart, it was a wonderful evening of theatre, laughter and song.
