Plaid Tidings - from the Towle Theater

For the past seven years photographing at the Towle Theater I have had the great opportunity to see the annual "A Fabulous 50's Christmas". This seems to be the Towle Theater tradition which everyone around town has come to enjoy, and wants to see with anticipation. For me the musical brought memories upon memories of my family life. Oh, did I just write in past tense "brought"? Yep.

This year the Towle Theater broke tradition and put on the musical "Plaid Tidings". Oh my, it was GREAT! This musical is soooo refreshing. It is funny, and even hilarious at times. All of the actors, and especially the directing and choreography were huge! Yet the holiday season remains present in this musical, as it should. Could this musical become the new Towle Theater tradition? Or perhaps a trade once and while with "A Fabulous 50's Christmas?

So you say you are worn out? Tired of the same holiday cheer? No, you do not need Geritol. You need some Plaid Tidings . . .
