A Barbershop trio, who are horrible singers yet are delusional and think they have what it takes to make it big, are singing on a street corner trying to sell their CD. After a passerby sarcastically tells one of the singers that he is a star and can make it on his own, his ego begins to grow. He becomes critical of the other two, which turns into pity quarrels, finally cultivating in large arguments. Is this the beginning of the end for the Barbershop trio? This 10 minute comedy examines the value of friendship, and the struggles of sticking together even when the world is against you.
REED: The “leader” of the group. He is a dreamer with a big ego.
PETUNIA: She is sassy, but grounded. Determined to sell the trio’s CDs.
LINUS: He is optimistic with a heart of gold. Very loyal to the group and takes his role seriously.
PASSERBY (supporting character): A random person walking by the trio. This character is sarcastic, disinterested, and in a hurry to get away from the trio.
