BREAKDOWN
Seeking strong music readers who appear early 20s, height and weight proportionate, with solid movement skills. Please note on the submission if you have done Forever Plaid before and you know the original staging.

Francis (Frankie) (21-25): SECOND TENOR The leader and caretaker of the group, Francis has the most confidence. He takes care of his fellow Plaids and makes sure everyone knows where they’re supposed to be and what is supposed to happen next. He is also the connection between the audience and the guys. He has asthma, which acts up whenever numbers are too fast or the choreography gets too energetic. He has a great deal of compassion for the music and the group.

Sparky (21-25): BARITONE The “cut-up” of the group, Sparky is always looking for ways to crack jokes. He is very sharp and loves singing his tailor-made solos. He wears a retainer and has a slight speech impediment or lisp. Even though he is energetic and clever, he cares for his stepbrother, Jinx. He sings with a joyous bravura and lives to perform. He loves to tell stories and relishes every word. He is the comic engine of the show. Special skills: plays piano, melodica, maracas; does Jose Jimenez imitation.

Jinx (21-25): HIGH TENOR The shy one, Jinx is usually terrified. He doesn’t always remember what songs come next or what the next move is. He is Sparky’s stepbrother and there is a little sibling rivalry going on between them. He occasionally gets a nose bleed when he sings above an A. He lives his life terrified. He was abused and beaten. He is only in the group because he sings the high notes beautifully. The others are very protective of him.  Please note if you have a sustained, full-voice high “C” (not mixed/falsetto). Special skills: plays basic accordion, claves. 

Smudge (21-25): BASS The worrier, Smudge worries about the props and the running order and always assumes that the audience won’t like him. He has a chronic nervous stomach and is very reluctant to perform. He is also very clumsy. Smudge never enjoys or appreciates what he has. He always worries about what is coming up and regrets what is past. His glasses hide his good looks, and his sex appeal is revealed during “Rags to Riches.” Special skills: juggling, fire eating, plays brushes, bongos; imitations: Ed Sullivan, Topo Gigio. Please note if you sing the low “C” in “Sixteen Tons”.
