* FOREVER PLAIDFOREVER PLAID

Friday, April 2 at 7pm Saturday, April 3 at 3pm and 7pm $20 Tickets Presented by Southern Arizona Performing Arts Company - Forever Plaid is one of the most popular and successful musicals in recent memory. This deliciously fun revue is chock-full of classic barbershop quartet harmonies and pitch-perfect melodies! Once upon a time, there were four guys (Sparky, Smudge, Jinx and Frankie) who discovered that they shared a love for music and then got together to become their idols – The Four Freshman, The Hi-Lo's and The Crew Cuts. Rehearsing in the basement of Smudge's family's plumbing supply company, they became "Forever Plaid". On the way to their first big gig, the "Plaids" are broadsided by a school bus and killed instantly. It is at the moment when their careers and lives end that the story of Forever Plaid begins.... Singing in close harmony, squabbling boyishly over the smallest intonations and executing their charmingly outlandish choreography with overzealous 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.

Time: 9:00 am

(AM)SCRATCHBOARD/WATERCOLOR: COMBINING DRAWING WITH PAINTING ACRYLIC LANDSCAPE: A PAINTERLY APPROACH Instructor: Rick Wheeler Dates: Every Tuesday, January 5 to April 27, 2021 Time: 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM -AND/OR- 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM Fee: $45/3-hour class or a special price of $75 instead of $90, if you register for both a morning and afternoon class on the same day. Scratchboard is fundamentally a drawing medium, popular in the early 1900's for book illustration. Scratchboard makes for some very dramatic black & white renderings, but with this class, the students will discover how adding color - using traditional watercolor - can enhance their drawings. "Painterly" is a term often used among other painters. If one painter calls another artists work, "painterly" it's considered a compliment. The term is used to describe a style of work that allows for visible brushstrokes, thick applications of paint, dry brush, and blocking-in, while incorporating a more generalized, less detailed approach to painting. All of these techniques, and several others will be covered.
