The city’s venerable dinner theatre set to resume operations April 2

Intermission is over! It is time for everyone to please return to your seats.”

Those were the words of BDT Stage Artistic Producer Michael J. Duran during a recent “family meeting” of BDT Stage employees over Zoom. After a year being dark, the popular dinner theatre is set to kick off a new season with concerts and one mainstage show — Forever Plaid.

Shows announced so far include The Barton Brothers Dueling Pianos April 2 and 3; FACE on April 9 and 10; Chris Collins’ legendary John Denver tribute show April 15, 16 and 17; and Anna High and Sheryl Renee in Queens of Song.

Forever Plaid is set to run May 7 through June 27. The show features a night of nostalgic pop hits from the 1950s, including Sixteen Tons, Chain Gang, Three Coins in the Fountain, Perfidia, Cry, Catch a Falling Star, Day-O, Gotta Be This or That, Matilda, Heart and Soul – and more.

Playing the Plaids are Scott Severtson as Frankie, Jacob Villarreal as Smudge, Leo Batlle as Sparky, and Brian Cronan as Jinx. Forever Plaid is directed by Matthew D. Peters, with music direction by Neal Dunfee.

Tickets for all performances at BDT Stage will be on sale beginning at 10 a.m. March 17. Call (303) 449-6000 or visit www.bdtstage.com for reservations.
