Palestine Community Theatre is adding a special one-weekend performance of “Forever Plaid” to its season lineup to raise funds for its facade restoration project.

“Forever Plaid” will run through Sunday. The curtain will open at 7:30 p.m. today and Saturday and 2 p.m. on Sunday at Texas Theatre, 213 W. Crawford, Palestine.

This deliciously goofy revue centers on four fun and eager male singers killed in a car crash in the 1950s on the way to their first big concert and are 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 1950s.

Tickets are $8 for students, ages 4 to 18, and $12 for adults.

Tickets are available at the Palestine Area Chamber of Commerce, Dogwood Diner, Switch, Sears, Discount Pools and Education Unlimited.

Tickets may also be purchased online at .
