The halls are alive with The Sound of Plaid as H.D. Stafford Middle School and Langley Secondary team up to present another musical extravaganza — this one a “Glee Club edition.”

The Sound of Plaid tells the story of a group of students who are on their way to their first major performance, but en route their school bus is broadsided by a bus full of Catholic school girls on their way to see the Beatles North American premier on the Ed Sullivan Show.

None of the plaids survive and the posthumous show is their one opportunity to give the performance they couldn’t in life.

Filled with ’60s tunes and enough plaid to last a lifetime, The Sound of Plaid runs from Feb. 28 to March 2 and March 7-9 at 7 p.m. with 2 p.m. matinee performances on March 2 and 9. Tickets are $12 adult and $10 student/senior.

For reservation information, go to www.langleysecondary.com and click on the Sound of Plaid link, or call 604-534-4171 ext. 743.

All performances take place at LSS, 21405 56 Ave.
