Weathervane is seeking out four singing men to create The Plaids, a doo-wop group sent from up above down to Earth on a secret holiday mission. This comedic sequel to “Forever Plaid” features holiday favorites as well as classics, such as “Mambo Italiano” and “Fever.”
“Forever Plaid: Plaid Tidings” rehearses evenings and weekends November 28-December 15 with performances December 16-19. Actors will receive a performance stipend.
Francis (Second Tenor-Lyric Baritone): The leader of Group One. He has the most confidence, yet must be as humble as they come.
Sparky (Baritone): The Clown. He is always looking for a way to crack jokes. This actor must have impeccable comedic timing, and love to perform. Eventually, this class clown is shown to have a heart.
Jinx (Tenor): The shy one. Terrified and scattered. Journeys from timid to confident as the show progresses.
Smudge (Bass): The worrier. The awkward one. He wears glasses until the end when he reveals his sex appeal, i.e. Clark Kent/Superman.
