One of the most popular and successful musicals in recent memory.  This deliciously goofy revue centers on four young, eager male singers killed in a car crash in the 1950’s on the way to their first big concert, and now miraculously revived for the posthumous chance to fulfill their dreams and perform the show that never was.  Singing in the closest of harmony, squabbling boyishly over the smallest intonations and executing their charmingly outlandish choreography with over-zealous precision, the “Plaids” are a guaranteed smash, with a program of beloved songs and delightful patter that keeps audiences rolling in the aisles when they’re not humming along to some of the great nostalgic pop hits of the 1950’s.


The Imperial Valley University Partnership (IVUP) between San Diego State – Imperial Valley Campus, Imperial Valley College and the Imperial County Office of Education, is preparing for the record incoming freshmen class of Fall 2012.


A key feature of the IVUP is to offer top students full and/or partial tuition scholarships as incentive to local high school graduates.  While donations over the years have established a strong endowment for scholarships – more is needed to meet the expanded student enrollment.


On Saturday, March 17th, 2012 the IVUP is hosting the hilariously fun musical, Forever Plaid, at the SHS Jimmie Cannon Theatre in El Centro.  Tickets are just $30 dollars for adults and a bargain price of $15 for students with ID’s. The Forever Plaid event is a fundraising event with all of the proceeds going directly to fund student scholarships in the Imperial Valley University Partnership.


The show will start at 7pm with the doors opening for General Admission seating at 6pm.  Tickets may be purchased online, at the door, or at one of several ticket locations around Imperial Valley.
