Plaid Tidings: Forever Plaid by Stuart Ross is an extraordinary 2-hour energetic extravaganza featuring the best of Forever Plaid tied-up in a nifty package with a big Christmas bow at the top!  Filled with Christmas standards that have all been "Plaid-erized," our boys are back to do their Christmas Special.  At first they aren't sure why they've returned, 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.

Jon Hickerson, who plays Frankie, stopped by the KIOS-FM studios to chat with Mike Hogan about this energetic, funny, music-filled sequel to the hit "Forever Plaid."

Sprinkled among the Christmas offerings are audience favorites like the riotous three minute and eleven second version of "The Ed Sullivan Show" - this time featuring the Rockettes, the Chipmunks and the Vienna Boys Choir, and a Plaid Caribbean Christmas which puts the "Day-O" in excelsis!  This is one holiday treat that is truly "heavenly-sent!"

December 12th begins the last weekend of performances.  Rob Lohman and Kristin Lyon present pre-show entertainment 45-minutes before each performance.  ​Special guest appearance by Peggy Holloway.  More information on tickets and showtimes is available at

In Performing Artists Repertory Theatre’s (PART) intimate, cabaret-style setting, plays and musical theater of superb quality and richness offer audiences a ​unique, immersive experience.  Singer/Actor John Hickerson joins Mike Hogan "Live & Local" to discuss the new show "Ring of Fire" which opens August 9th.

From the songbook of Johnny Cash comes this unique musical about love and faith, struggle and success, rowdiness and redemption, and the healing power of home and family.  More than two dozen classic hits—including “I Walk The Line,” “A Boy Named Sue,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” and the title tune—performed by a multi-talented cast, paint a musical portrait of The Man in Black that promises to be a foot-stompin’, crowd-pleasin’ salute to a unique musical legend!  Though he is never impersonated, Johnny Cash’s remarkable life story is told through his music, climaxing in a concert that will both move and exhilarate.
