Forever Plaid - a musical revue by Stuart Ross

When four young singers are killed in a car crash, they posthumously take the stage for one final gig in this goofy, 1950s nostalgia trip.

Once upon a time, there were four guys (Sparky, Smudge, Jinx and Frankie) who discovered that they shared a love for music and then got together to become their idols - The Four Freshman, The Hi-Lo's and The Crew Cuts. Rehearsing in the basement of Smudge's family's plumbing supply company, they became "Forever Plaid". On the way to their first big gig, the "Plaids" are broadsided by a school bus and killed instantly. It is at the moment when their careers and lives end that the story of Forever Plaid begins....

ROLE BREAKDOWNS --- All roles are open.

Francis: Second Tenor (range: F3 to B5 (m)   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: Baritone (range: F3 to G5)   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 loves to perform. He loves to tell stories and relishes every word. He is the comic engine of the show.

Jinx: Tenor (range: F3 to C6 (High C)   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.

Smudge: Bass (range: Low C to G5)   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.

a) Singers should prepare a selection between 16-32 bars, in the style of the show that demonstrates range. Callbacks will be by invitation and will require singing harmonies in small groups.

- Sides for readings will be provided.
- Accompanist will be provided.

b) Please bring a current headshot & resume OR complete PRE-AUDITION FORM

c) Bring your calendar and be prepared to list all conflicts. Conflicts not listed at time of audition may not be honored.
