Thanks to a heavenly phone call from Rosemary Clooney, the four Plaid men return to harmonize on songs from the 1930s, '40s and '50s in their own hilarious tribute to the classic Ed Sullivan Christmas spectaculars. Packed with "Plaid-erized" Christmas standards, such as "Mr. Santa," "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," Plaid Tidings is a holiday treat that is truly heaven sent. Learn More

The play stars a very poor and elderly woman who is trying to visit her childhood home in Bountiful, despite her son and daughter in law forbiding it. They describe her efforts as "running away". The story and the acting, particularly the old woman, is superb.
Horton Foote’s tender and moving American classic about finding your way home. Aging Carrie Watts desperately wants to return to her hometown of Bountiful, Texas while she still has energy and spirit. Her son would rather bury the past. And her daughter-in-law can’t understand why she would want to leave the city. But despite their protests, Mrs. Watts yearns to plunge her hands into the dirt, to hear the birds sing, to breathe the country air -- and to prove that she is more than the fragile old woman people see when they look at her!
