Garden Spot Village invites residents, family, friends and the general public to enjoy the music of the nifty '50s when Servant Stage Company performs "Forever Plaid" for its first time ever on July 16 & 17, at 7 p.m. both evenings.

Garden Spot Village invites the public to enjoy the music of the nifty '50s when Servant Stage Company presents its premier performance of the popular off-Broadway revue, Forever Plaid on Thursday and Friday, July 16 and 17, beginning at 7 p.m. in the community chapel.

"This clean-cut musical review promises to be lots of fun for anyone who enjoys the timeless tunes of the 1950s," said Colleen Musselman, director of life enrichment at Garden Spot Village. "We welcome our neighbors in New Holland and beyond to join us for an evening of entertainment."

Directed by Wally Calderon, the show combines humor, song and dance in a tribute to precision harmony and '50s-style crooning. The cast of four will perform such classics as "Moments to Remember," "Heart and Soul," "Love is a Many Splendored Thing" and many others.

Two casts will perform Forever Plaid this season. The performances at Garden Spot Village will feature Ric Zimmerman as Jinks, Tyler Hoover as Sparky, Michael Lapham as Smudge, and Michael Popovsky as Frankie.
