Coeur d’Alene Summer Theatre kicks off season with ‘Forever Plaid’

In “Forever Plaid,” directed by Tyler Krieg, four singers, known as the Plaids, who are killed in a car crash on the way to their first big concert, return from the afterlife for another chance to put on a great performance.

Coeur d’Alene Summer Theatre’s production of “Forever Plaid” stars Jeff Rowden as Jinx, Jadd Davis as Francis, Casey Raiha as Sparky and Henry McNulty as Smudge. The musical revue, with a book by Stuart Ross, premiered in 1989 and was made into a movie in 2009.

“Forever Plaid” features such classics as “Three Coins in the Fountain,” “Love is a Many-Splendored Thing,” “Heart and Soul,” “Lady of Spain,” “Rags to Riches” and “Moments to Remember.”

Watching the video the theater posted on its Facebook page of Rowden, Davis, Raiha and McNulty practice “Three Coins,” it’s easy to imagine them as the Plaids; the quartet’s harmonies are spot on.
