Plaid Tidings

Enlightened Theatrics Plaid Tidings offers the best of the classic Forever Plaid, topped with a big Christmas bow!

Filled with Christmas tunes that have all been “Plaid-erized,”  Francis, Jinx, Smudge and Sparky are back for their Christmas special. Returning to Earth for another posthumous performance, The Plaids are tasked with putting a little harmony into a discordant world. Numbers include their riotous three-minute-and-eleven-second version of The Ed Sullivan Show, with the Rockettes, the Chipmunks, The Vienna Boys Choir and more!

This “heaven-sent” holiday treat will lift your spirits and fill them with nostalgia for an era of classic music sung in perfect harmony.
With only four actors and a combo Plaid Tidings is the perfect holiday show for the ultimate, intimate and enlightening musical theatre experience.
