           Once upon a time, there were four guys (Sparky, Smudge, Jinx and Frankie) who discovered that they shared a love for music and entertaining and got together, dreaming of becoming like their idols -- The Four Freshman, The Hi-Lo's and The Crew Cuts.  Rehearsing in the basement of Smudge's family's plumbing supply company they became "Forever Plain".  On the way to their first big gig they were slammed broadside by a school bus.  The members of "Forever Plaid" were killed instantly.  It is at the moment when their careers and lives end, the story of FOREVER PLAID begins.........

       Singing in the closest of harmony, squabbling boyishly over the smallest intonations and executing their charmingly outlandish choreography with over-zealous precision, the "Plaids" are a guaranteed smash, with a program of beloved songs and delightful patter that will keep you rolling in the aisles when you're not humming along to some of the great nostalgic pop hits of the 1950's.
