Forever Plaid tells the story of four eager young men in the 1950s. Best friends and fine singers, they were on their way to their first big concert when they were killed in a car crash. Miraculously, they are revived in Forever Plaid to perform the show that never happened and given the chance to fulfill their dreams. The boys will charm their way into your hearts as they deliver great, nostalgic pop hits of the 1950s.
A LITTLE MORE INFORMATION ABOUT GROUP EVENTS AT BOULDER’S DINNER THEATRE: · It is a good deal to go with the Fairview Choir as a group. The $37 ticket price is a group discount price, plus you get the bonus inclusion of coffee, tea & soda pop and a tip for your waiter. · If you order specialty drinks, dessert, appetizers, or order an upgrade, you will receive a bill at the end of the night for those extras. Be sure and bring money for any extras you might order and remember to tip on anything you have ordered extra. · Even if you do not order extras, you might consider leaving an extra dollar or two for the evening as the tip included in your ticket price is modest. · PLEASE NOTE: Once our reservation is set, there is no cancellation or refund.
