The Characters are the same in FOREVER PLAID.

SEEKING:

FRANCIS:
The leader of Group One. He has the most confidence. He takes care of his fellow PLAIDS and make sure that everyone knows where they’re supposed to be and what is supposed to happen next. He has asthma, which acts up whenever numbers are too fast or the choreography too energetic. He has a great deal of compassion for the music and the group. He is always saving the guys from embarrassment. FRANCIS must be as humble as they come. Second tenor- Lyric Baritone.

SPARKY:
The clown- the imp- the scamp. The “cut-up” of the group. He is always looking for ways to crack jokes. He is very sharp and loves sensing his tailor-made solos. Even though he is energetic and clever, he cares for his step-brother. He sings with a joyous bravura and loves to perform. He is the comic engine of the show. Baritone.

JINX:
The shy one. He is terrified. He doesn’t always remember what song comes next or what the next move is. He is Sparky’s step-brother and there is a little step-sibling rivalry going on between them. He occasionally gets a nose bleed when he sings above a A. He is only in the group because he sings great and high. Tenor.

SMUDGE:
The worrier. He worries about the props, about the running order and always assumes that the audience won’t like him. He has a chronic nervous stomach. He is very reluctant to perform. His name is Smudge because he is left-handed and he would smudge the page every time he wrote. Smudge never enjoyed or appreciated what he had. Smudge wears glasses, which hide his good looks and sex appeal. Bass.
