COSTELLO MUSIC IS A BURLESQUE CLUB IN SCOTLAND, RAN BY THE FRATELLI BROTHERS; FRANK, VINCE AND GREG. THE MUSICAL WILL FOCUSON FOUR SUB STORIES, ONE FOR EACH OF THE BROTHERS AND ONE FOR THE NEW GIRL, HENRIETTA. THIS PRESENTATION WILL LOOK AT THE MAIN FEATURES OF EACH CHARACTER.
This song is the introduction to the play. Henrietta is the new girl in Costello, making her a bit more innocent and naive than the other girls. She is the only character who isnt Scottish. Henrietta is 23 and is a closeted gay lady, which is realised by Vince.Although she is naive, shes smart as balls. Very hesitant to dance with the other girls, but when she does its amazing. Costume idea is a green slip and stocking combo.
TOOK HER OUT FOR TACOS, SAID SHE LIKED BURRITOS.
Loosely based on the lead singer of The Fratellis, Jon. Frank is the owner of Costello and he bloody loves it. Throughout the first three scenes he is very flirty with the girls and they adore him. He is very charismatic and is very much an extrovert.Within Chelsea Dagger, he realises he is in love with his long time employee and friend Chelsea and finally begins to set his mind on her. Eventually frank sells Costello Music to replace Vinces bluebird (next slide) and buys a new bar in London called The DaggersFor the costume, a flamboyant shirt to match his personality and the classic top hat featured in the Henrietta video. I said tell me your name, is it sweet?
Vince the loveable stoner Fratelli Vince is the middle brother of the Fratellis.As his name suggests, he is a stoner.His pride and joy is his car, the bluebird, which eventually gets stolen (but frank replaces it). Throughout the show he has the keys in his hands, constantly. Vince has been with every girl in Costello, bar Henrietta. Throughout the show he makes it so she goes on a date with him but Vince works out that Henrietta is in the closet. his charm has always been a mystery to his younger brother, Greg.
Hes so pretty, he always looks shitty.
Little Greg Fratelli is adopted as he is being portrayed by an Asian (oops). Youngest and most insecure of the Fratelli brothers. He is constantly trying to loose his virginity in Costello, but eventually gets with Vinces dealer and gets her pregnant, becoming a single dad at 21. Greg is the butt of everyones jokes and is trying to find his place in the business.Has some laddish traits and takes great pride in his appearance.
I got my nuts from a hippie in a campervan Saturday night
Chelsea Dagger Chelsea is the girl who frank falls for.Shes moderately younger than him but a lot smarter and has been for a long while. Chelsea is in some ways a seductress and the most popular at Costello Shes a wkd dancer.Befriends Henrietta first as she knows the place backwards.
Her costume will be black with statement red pieces, carrying a feathered fan.Well you must be a girl with shoes like that
