Once upon a time, there were four guys (Sparky, Smudge, Jinx and Frankie) who discovered they shared a love for music and then got together to become 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 Plaid.” On the way to their first big gig, the “Plaids” are broadsided by a school bus and killed instantly. It is at the moment when their careers and lives end that the story of Forever Plaid begins….Singing in close harmony, squabbling boyishly over the smallest intonations and executing their charmingly outlandish choreography with overzealous precision, the “Plaids” are a guaranteed smash, with a program of beloved songs and delightful patter to keep you rolling in the aisles when not humming along to some of the great nostalgic pop hits of the 1950s.
Get your toes a-tappin’ and your hips a-shakin’ for a night of great nostalgic pop hits from the 1950s. The concert that never was features Sixteen Tons, Chain Gang, Three Coins in the Fountain, Perfidia, Cry, Catch a Falling Star, Day-O, Gotta Be This or That, Matilda, Heart and Soul – and more!
Playing the Plaids are BDT Stage favorites Scott Severtson as Frankie, Jacob Villarreal as Smudge, Leo Batlle as Sparky, and Brian Cronan as Jinx.
Forever Plaid is directed by Matthew D. Peters, with music direction by Neal Dunfee.

BDT Stage will resume selling reserved seats at our normal 100% capacity as allowed by the City and County of Boulder, the state of Colorado, and the CDC.

BDT Stage is a dinner theatre. There is nostalgia and comfort brought to many inside our dining room, and while our menu still offers all our patron favorites, the ordering process has been adjusted to allow for enhanced safety.
