Oct. 26, 2012 - PRLog -- BIG ARTS Herb Strauss Theater, the only professional theater on Sanibel, delivers a musical gift for the holiday season. Forever Plaid: Plaid Tidings finds Sparky, Jinx, Smudge and Frankie, of our favorite all-male vocal group, the Plaids, returned to Earth from Heaven to deliver some much needed holiday cheer. Filled with Christmas standards that have all been “Plaid-erized,” the boys’ Christmas Special is packed with all your holiday favorites, including Let It Snow, I’ll Be Home for Christmas, Carol of the Bells, It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, Jingle Bells, and many more.

Performances are 8 p.m. December 17 – 22, and 26 – 29. There are 4 p.m. matinées December 23 and 30. Tickets are $42 for adults and $20 for children. There will be a special New Year’s Eve performance Monday, December 31, which will include a champagne reception and toast. Tickets are $75. Show begins at 9 p.m.

This production stars Michael Lo Balsamo, Robby May, John Ramsey, and Matthew Schmidt; the show’s Director is Michael Stanek.

The show opens as the Plaids find themselves surprised to be back on Earth. But as the celestial guardians of harmony, they know they must have been sent for a special reason and mission: to bring selfless love back to the world through song! The Spirit of Christmas takes hold as the boys take you on a journey of your favorite Christmas memories. Even the Christmastime Spirit of Rosemary Clooney will pay a visit to the Plaids and guide them on their mission to deliver holiday tidings of comfort and joy to all men, women and children.

Charles Whaley of southern Indiana’s News and Review calls Forever Plaid: Plaid Tidings “jolly, rollicking … and rib-tickling,” and Barry Pineo of The Austin Chronicle says, “It’s a charming Christmas show you will always remember.” Plaid Tidings will keep you humming along in good cheer straight through the New Year.
