Penobscot Theatre Company’s “Plaid Tidings” is the highest-grossing production in the 37-year history of the company, surpassing the record set last year by “Forever Plaid,” according to Scott R.C. Levy, PTC’s producing artistic director.
Last year’s production of “Forever Plaid,” the original show in which a recently deceased early 1960s vocal group called the Plaids is brought back from the dead for one show only, broke box office records and was the highest-selling show in PTC’s history.
“Bangor has continued to go crazy for ‘Plaid,’” Levy said in a recent statement. “I couldn’t be more thrilled by the support we’ve received from critics and audiences alike. Here’s hoping [playwright] Stuart Ross finishes his work on the third installment of ‘Plaid’ in the near future so that our audiences can continue to enjoy this magical world of doo-wop in future seasons.”
Four performances remain of “Plaid Tidings,” including a student matinee for Bangor High School students at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 21. The tickets for the student matinee have been purchased for students by the Zonta Club in memory of club member Barbara Cassidy.
The remaining public performances of “Plaid Tidings” are at 7 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday, Dec. 21-23, at the Bangor Opera House, 131 Main St. in Bangor. Some tickets remain for each of the three performances and are available by calling the box office at 942-3333 or online at www.penobscottheatre.org.
