Reprising their musical roles are Paul Jordan as Frankie, Nick Timmerman as Smudge, Aaron Adair at Jinx and Blake Rice as Sparky. The story follows the four musicians who never got to perform their musical act in life, but get a second chance in the after-life. Plaid Tidings has the quartet putting their own spin and style on Christmas classics.

In conjunction with Plaid Tidings, the SCP Theater Guild is oganizing a donation drive to help fulfill some of the needs of the Grand Central Station soup kitchen and the Children’s Express program, both located in Sherman. There will be donation boxes in the lobbies of both the Honey McGee Playhouse and the Finley Theater. For a list of of what’s needed at both of these non-profit agencies, go to the SCP website and click on "support SCP."


"I am personally excited about the Theater Guild’s commitment to doing this. After all the support the theater receives from the community, it is nice that we will be able to provide a venue to help back," says Anthony Nelson, SCP artistic director. "The Theater Guild, for those who aren’t familiar with this group and would like to entertain the idea of joining, is a guild comprised of volunteers who are dedicated to the production side of the SCP Main Stage shows. There are no membership fees, just hours served. It entails everything from box office work and set building to helping usher at the performances. It’s a great way to help support the arts in Texoma."
