'Tis the Season to Break a Leg

"Forever Plaid" is a show that appeared off-Broadway of four guys that form a harmony group in high school, on their way to their first big gig when they are killed in a car crash. God gives them their wish to come back and do their show," Sandish said. "'Plaid Tidings' picks up where that left off, with another mission for the boys in plaid, though they don't know what it is."

He offered tidbits about the story.

"We're connected to a famous female crooner," he said, but wouldn't say who.

Not only does Sandish direct, he's also one of those "boys in plaid" that star in the show.

"I play 'Sparky' in the show. He's kind of the cut-up or class clown type of the group," he said.

Though he did admit it is not an easy task.

"It's a bit precarious sometimes," he said. "I try to astral project myself into the audience to see what we're doing on stage."

Originally scheduled to run from Wednesday, Dec. 5 to Sunday, Dec. 23, large amounts of ticket sales have led the theater to extend the show to Dec. 30, with no fear that the holiday being over will slow the spirit.

"The extension is already in place and it is selling quite well," said Alison McLean, director of marketing and communications for the Capital Repertory Theater.

"People are looking for things to do with their children after the holiday is over, between Christmas and New Year, and taking them to a show is a great way to spend time together."
