Patrons get a two-for-the-price-of-one special when they go to see The Sound of Plaid.
The spring musical is being put on by Langley Secondary and H.D. Stafford Middle School, so patrons get to see the talent from both local schools as they host this high school version based on the original production Forever Plaid.
The Plaids are a group of young students on their way to perform their first major show when their school bus is broadsided by a bus full of Catholic school girls who were on their way to see the Beatles North American premier on the Ed Sullivan Show.
The Plaids don’t survive but in the afterlife are able to present the show they never had the opportunity to do in life.
It’s a show chock full of music from a bygone era and has proven popular with all ages.
Matinees are March 2 and 9 at 2 p.m. with 7 p.m. shows Feb. 28 to March 2 and March 7-9.
For tickets go to www.langleysecondary.com and click on the Sound of Plaid link or call 604-534-4171 ext. 743.
The cost is $12 for adults and $10 for seniors and students.
The shows take place at the school, 21405 56th Ave.
When H.D. Stafford was reconfigured into a middle school a few years ago, there was a commitment to create strong bonds between Stafford and the high school where most of those students would be heading – Langley Secondary.
The schools have created the HDS & LSS Musical Theatre Company for the annual stage productions, giving students from both schools opportunities in theatrical shows.
This production brings together teachers Chad Hendricks, Patti Thorpe and Brian Leonard as well as a large cast.
