The musical tells the tale of four guys with a shared love of music who hone their talents in the basement of a plumbing supply company until they create a pop group that can compete with their idols.

Then a tragic accident stops their career before it can begin – and the story of Forever Plaid begins.

“Come and enjoy this program of beloved songs, lively choreography and delightful patter that will have audiences rolling in the aisles when they’re not humming along to those fabulous tunes,” a release says.

The off-Broadway revue includes such famous songs as Three Coins in a Fountain, Heart and Soul, and Love is a Many-Splendoured Thing.

The songs are brought to life by a quartet of performers. Dann Wilhelm plays Francis, the leader of the group. Allen Fraser is Sparky, the comedian and jokester. Christopher Hall takes on the role of Jinx, the shy tenor. Bradley Dewar completes the foursome as Smudge, the worrier.

It’s directed by Wayne Nolan, with musical direction by Julie Atchison.

Forever Plaid is on Thursdays through Saturdays at 8 p.m., with Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. Two special Saturday matinees are set for Nov. 26 and Dec. 3 at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $20 regular, $18 for seniors and youth, with $15 previews on Nov. 24 and 25. See or call 604-521-0412.
