Plaid Tidings 105 287-9.jpg

At first, Francis, Jinx, Smudge and Sparky aren't sure why they've returned to Earth for another posthumous performance, but a phone call from the heavenly Rosemary Clooney lets them know that they're needed to put a little harmony into a discordant world. Sprinkled among the Christmas offerings are audience favorites, like their riotous three-minute-and-eleven-second version of The Ed Sullivan Show – this time, featuring the Rockettes, the Chipmunks and The Vienna Boys Choir, as well as a Plaid Caribbean Christmas that puts the "Day-O" in Excelsis!

Plaids On The Podcast

Crawford County Now interviewed Plaid Tidings director Rick Walker and Randy Mann on its community-minded podcast in preparation of ticket sales opening to the public. Listen to the audio recording or check out the video interview. 


Randy Mann


While Randy may have retired from his teaching career in music in Mt. Gilead after 36 years, he certainly hasn't retired from his love of music. In addition to his role as Francis, he is currently the director of the all men's group, "UNITED in Harmony," as well as the director of the Galion Community Chorus' annual performance of "The Messiah."


Rick Walker


While new to the Bucyrus Little Theatre, Rick is no stranger to the region's theatre community. With more than 30 years of experience (mostly acting, music directing and choreography), Rick is taking on the challenge of directing and acting on this production of "Plaid Tidings."


Jason Chandler


Jason is not a stranger to the Bucyrus Little Theatre stage having performed and directed numerous productions - most recently the award-winning show, "Disenchanted!" Additionally, Jason taught at WHS for 22 years. When he's not performing, Jason enjoys spending time with his wife, Kristie, and their three sons and two daughters.


Keagan Nicolaides


Perhaps there was a greater plan in play for Keagan when his car broke down in front of BLT on the day of auditions. Long story short, Keagan can now add "actor," to his impressive list of skills, which includes plumbing, electrical, and flooring work.
