RETURNING TO EARTH

One of Pickleville’s all-time favorite musicals is back for three performances only. Chock-full of classic barbershop quartet harmonies, hilariously-lovable characters, and comedic gold to boot, this show is two hours of non-stop, high-quality entertainment!

 

 

 

WHAT'S THE SHOW ABOUT?

 

Once upon a time in 1956, there were four high school friends: Frankie, Sparky, Jinx, and Smudge. Discovering their shared affection for music and rehearsing harmonies 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" were broadsided by a school bus and killed instantly. It’s at the moment when their careers and lives end that the story of Forever Plaid begins. Their final mission is to return to earth and complete the show they never got to do in life—to leave one perfect chord ringing through time and space eternally.

 

Singing in close harmony, squabbling over the smallest intonations and executing their outlandish choreography with overzealous precision, the "Plaids" are a guaranteed smash. With a program of beloved songs and delightful patter, this show keeps audiences rolling in the aisles when they're not humming along to some of the great nostalgic pop hits of the 1950s. Don’t miss the opportunity to witness our 2012 cast as they return for three reprise performances of this, one of Pickleville’s most popular production to date!

MEET THE PLAIDS

FRANKIE

 

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.

 

 

Spencer Carter

JINX

 

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 is only in the group because he sings the high notes beautifully. The others are very protective of him.

 

 

 

Eric Sackett

Sparky

 

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. 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.

 

 

SMUDGE

 

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.
