Summer ends on song


August 15, 1996|By J. Wynn Rousuck

Totem Pole Playhouse, the summer theater in Fayetteville, Pa., concludes its season with the off-Broadway hit "Forever Plaid," a salute to the close-harmony guy groups of the 1950s and 1960s, continuing through Aug. 25.

Created by Stuart Ross, "Forever Plaid" is about a fictitious quartet whose members were killed in a car accident on the way to their first big job. Now, through a hole in the ozone layer, or wish fulfillment, or whatever, they return to Earth to perform their first -- and last -- professional gig. Totem Pole's production is directed by "Plaid" veteran Paul Binotto, who recently starred in "Candide" at Washington's Arena Stage.

Totem Pole Playhouse is at 9555 Golf Course Road, in Caledonia State Park, 14 miles west of Gettysburg, Pa. Show times are 8 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, with matinees at 2: 30 p.m. Wednesdays and Saturdays and 3 p.m. Sundays. Tickets are $15-$22. Call (717) 352-2164.
