PLAID TIDINGS

Forever Plaid, your favorite heavenly boy group, brings us Plaid Tidings... just in time for the holidays! Frankie, Sparky, Jinx and Smudge return to weave the magic of the 50s and 60s into the hearts of everyone. So stuff your stockings with 1950s tunes and Holiday gems like "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas." Sprinkled among the Christmas offerings are audience favorites like The Plaid's riotous 3-minute and 11-second version of "The Ed Sullivan Show"- this time featuring The Rockettes, The Chipmunks and a Plaid Caribbean Christmas which puts the "Day-O" in Excelsis!

"Screamingly funny! Entirely enchanting, utterly entertaining, awesome! ... Will put a smile on your face, a hum in your throat and a tap to your feet." - New York Post
"Letter-perfect! Sweet, funny and thoroughly amusing." - The New York Times

Synopsis
In recognition of National Mental Health Awareness Month in May 2018, Simi Valley Cultural Arts Center proudly presents the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winning musical NEXT TO NORMAL from April 21 - May 27, 2018. NEXT TO NORMAL, with book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey and music by Tom Kitt (American Idiot), explores how one suburban household copes with crisis and mental illness. Winner of three 2009 TONY Awards including Best Musical Score and the 2010 Pulitzer Prize, NEXT TO NORMAL was also chosen as "one of the year's ten best shows" by critics around the country, including The Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, Rolling Stone and The New York Times. Dad's an architect; Mom rushes to pack lunches and pour cereal; their daughter and son are bright, wise-cracking teens, appearing to be a typical American family. And yet their lives are anything but normal, because the mother has been battling bipolar disorder for 16 years. NEXT TO NORMAL takes audiences into the minds and hearts of each character, presenting their family's story with love, sympathy and heart. And, importantly, with much more humor that one might expect. This show is recommended for audiences 14 & older due to mature themes.
