Forever Plaid fans will be treated to a special New Year's Eve performance of the hit musical in San Diego, CA, at 7:30 PM on Dec. 31. Festivities will include Plaid harmonies, hilarity, party favors and dessert buffet. At midnight, Times Square time (9 PM PST), the audience will join the plaids in a countdown to the new year as the ball drops in a live giant TV broadcast in the theatre. Celebrants will raise their glasses in a non-alcoholic toast to the new millennium.
New Year's Eve performance tickets are $50 per person. A dinner-theatre package with the nearby Cafe Pacifica is also available at $99 per person, either preceding or following the performance.
The cast of Forever Plaid recently participated in a "Toys for Tots" 8K run. Through Dec. 19 theatregoers can save $4 per ticket by bringing a new toy to The Theatre in Old Town.
Beginning Jan. 19, 2000, Forever Plaid will add a Wed. 3 PM matinee to its schedule. The hit musical is now in its 4th smash year at The Theatre, which is located at 4040 Twiggs St. For tickets and information call (619) 688-2494 or visit www.foreverplaidsd.com
