When four young singers are killed in a car crash, they posthumously take the stage for one final gig in this goofy 1950′s nostalgia trip.   Forever Plaid is one of the most popular and successful musicals in recent memory.

Sandusky Street, Findlay, Ohio. You may audition at either date, but the director may ask you to stay or come back on Saturday to sing in a group.

Each performer is asked to prepare a 2 selections: one up-tempo number and one ballad which showcase their range and characterization. An accompanist will be provided. Performers should also be prepared to sing in a group from music provided at the audition. Finally performers should be dressed for a simple movement exercise.
