GRAND LAKE – After a sold out closing weekend, Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre opens its final production of the season with the musical favorite, Forever Plaid, featuring dozens of songs from the ‘50s and ‘60s.

The upbeat family show tells the story of a clean-cut high school singing quartet that dreams of recording an album. The only problem? The Plaids are killed when their car collides with a bus of parochial schoolgirls on their way to see the Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show. However, the group returns from the afterlife for another chance at musical success.

This entertaining story of the quartet’s posthumous try for musical stardom features some of the greatest ‘50s and ‘60s hits ever per-formed, including Catch a Falling Star and Three Coins in a Fountain.

Featuring RMRT alum David Miller as Smudge and presenting new-comers Anthony Norman (Jinx), Bryce Dutton (Frankie) and Jens Ja-cobsen (Sparky), theatre-goers are guaranteed a hilarious night of musical comedy, featuring some of the best harmonies to grace the RMRT stage.

“What better way to celebrate autumn in the Rockies than by treating Grand County to one of my all-time favorite musicals,” says Artistic Director Michael Querio who incidentally starred in Forever Plaid on the Rocky Mountain Rep stage back in 2000. “This is one musical that will delight audiences of all ages.”

Forever Plaid opens Friday, Aug. 28, at 8 p.m., followed by a performance on Saturday (8 p.m.) and a Sunday matinee (2 p.m.). The show runs through Sept. 26. Additional information can be found at Or call 970.627.3421.
