Warner Theatre/Nancy Marine Studio Theatre Presents Forever Plaid Tidings --Torrington

12/07/2013 to 12/15/2013

60 Main Street, Torrington, CT 06790. Phone: 860-489-7180.

Warner Theatre-- Dec. 7 - 15, 2013 in the  Nancy Marine Studio Theatre Forever Plaid Tidings--Tickets: $26. FOREVER PLAID: PLAID TIDINGS is a show that offers the best of FOREVER PLAID tied-up in a nifty package with a big Christmas bow on top! Filled with Christmas standards that have all been "Plaid-erized," our boys are back to do their Christmas Special. At first Francis, Jinx, Smudge, and Sparky aren't sure why they've returned to Earth for another posthumous performance, but a phone call from the heavenly Rosemary Clooney lets them know that they're needed to put a little harmony into a discordant world. Sprinkled among the Christmas offerings are audience favorites like their riotous three minute and eleven second version of "The Ed Sullivan Show" - this time featuring the Rockettes, the Chipmunks and The Vienna Boys Choir, and a Plaid Caribbean Christmas which puts the "Day-O" in Excelsis! This truly "heaven-sent" holiday treat will lift audiences' spirits and remind youngsters that not all good music has to be auto-tuned. Performance Times: Saturday, Dec. 7 @ 8PM; Sunday, Dec. 8 @ 2 PM; Friday, Dec. 13 @ 8 PM; Saturday, Dec. 14 @ 8 PM; Sunday, Dec. 15 @ 2 PM. Reserve tickets by phone or website.
