AUBURN – The Four Plaids from the sold-out performances of Community Little Theatre’s March production of “Forever Plaid,” Dr. Ron Bouffard (Jinx), Dr. Bruce Condit (Sparky), Harry Neidig (Smudge) and Dr. Paul G. Caron (Frankie), will perform the nostalgic 50s songs from the musical at the APL Centennial Concert on Friday, Nov. 12, at the High Street Congregational Church. John Neal will be the pianist.

Barbara Ring is chairing the 8 p.m. fund-raiser benefiting the Auburn Public Library. Tickets are $10 and are available at the Auburn Public Library at the Auburn Mall. Those who want more information can call the library at 782-3191.

A series of fund-raising events have been held the past several months for the library, according to Tonie Ramsey, chairwoman of the Centennial Committee. She added, “Patrons have been generous and supportive and we are truly appreciative of their response.”

The library has completed 100 years of service to the community and is in the process of expanding its facility in the heart of downtown Auburn.

Included in the program are performances by well known pianist Phil House, along with Ring; Anne Caldwell, songstress in many CLT musicals accompanied by pianist-husband, Bob Caldwell; “Four on a Match,” women’s barbershop quartet from the Mollyockett Chapter of the Sweet Adelines – Rose Fredericks, baritone; Sue Bartlett, bass; Alda Reynolds, lead; and Darlene Glover, tenor.

Karl Dan Sorensen of Mount Vernon, who has been classically trained in the U.S. and Europe, will make a special appearance. He specializes in music of Bach, Mozart, Haydn and Early Music, as well as Broadway and barbershop. He has performed in many major choruses and orchestras as a guest soloist.

Barbara Randall, John Kelly and Dr. Otis Tibbetts are hosting the evening. Refreshments will be served by Eleanor Cummings and Maureen Tibbetts. Cheryl Ring is designing the program and Rachel Morin, the publicity.
