Casting has been announced for Forever Plaid at the St James Theatre.

The cast of four is Jon Lee (Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys, original member of British pop band S Club 7), Keith Jack (Joseph in Joseph and the Technicolour Dreamcoat, runner-up in BBC’s Any Dream Will Do), Matthew Quinn (Dreamboats and Petticoats, West End) and Luke Striffler (UK tours of Hairspray and Avenue Q, runner-up with The Kingdom Tenors on Britain’s Got Talent 2015).

Forever Plaid is a revue that pays tribute to close harmony guy groups  that reached the height of their popularity during the 1950s. Personifying the clean-cut genre are the Plaids. This quartet of high-school friends dreams of recording an album ended in death in a collision with a bus filled with Catholic schoolgirls on their way to see the Beatles’ American debut on The Ed Sullivan Show. The play begins with the Plaids returning from the afterlife for one final chance at musical glory.

At this remarkable encore performance audiences can expect to hear classics such as “Three Coins in the Fountain”; “Undecided”; “Gotta Be This or That”; “Moments to Remember”; “Crazy ‘Bout Ya, Baby”; “No, Not Much”; “Sixteen Tons”; “Chain Gang”; “Perfidia”; “Cry”; “Heart and Soul”; “Lady of Spain”; “Scotland the Brave”; “Shangri-La”; “Rags to Riches”; and “Love is a Many-Splendored Thing”.

Forever Plaid is produced by Katy Lipson for Aria Entertainment and Guy James.

Forever Plaid runs at the St James Theatre Studio from 5 – 24 April 2016. Book Now
