So far, I created a LOT of characters- they come from Tale of the Cattail Forest, Lizzy the Lizard, Greatest Discovery, and my Expansive World idea. However, some of the stories have better developed characters than others. What musicals do I think those characters would love?
Tale of the Cattail Forest
Tweetsie- due to being five, I think she would love anything relating to Disney. As in the princess ones at her age. Frozen, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, and Lion King would be some of her favorites. She even would love Mary Poppins as well. Despite not being Disney, she would also love Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella- probably would be her favorite R/H musical. SPOILERS: due to being a performer herself, I think she would fall in love with a number of musicals as she gets older.
Sparkle- she is someone who would literally draw anything. Does that mean she would literally fall in love with many musicals? She, like Lizzy, is adventurous, so she would be able to relate to Belle.
Misty- well, she is a singer by nature. Actually, in a lot of ways, she does have the protective side of Belle, so maybe Beauty and the Beast. At her age (12). As she gets older, I am thinking Wicked and Les Misérabes due to that side of her.
Sarge- I don’t think he will realize this at first, but I think he will love Phantom of the Opera. I think he will be able to relate to the Phantom. After all, he was abused growing up leading him to have an anger problem. He didn’t even realize how broken and lonely he really became. Physical and emotional scars were left on him. Nightmares were memories- those made things worse. As a matter of fact, I think he even could connect to Beauty and the Beast——as in the Beast, who had a temper he couldn’t control until someone helped changed his life.
Lizzy the Lizard
Lizzy- I think her favorite musical will be Beauty and the Beast. She is a very curious and adventurous lizard. Leading her to accidentally escape her citrus farm. I mean, she is the main character of a picture book.
Jasmine- for sure, she would Aladdin especially because she is named after the princess Jasmine. She would love anything Disney- from Aladdin to Beauty and the Beast to Lion King to Mary Poppins, etc. She even would love Newsies when it comes to stage. Even Tangled and Frozen. I mean, she and her twin sister had Disney-loving parents. She would also love Wicked. She would take a strong delight to seeing the costumes and how they were made.
Aurora- she would love Wicked when she gets to see it and just like Jasmine, any one of the Disney musicals she saw when her parents were still alive. Aladdin, Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, and later in life, Tangled and Frozen and soon enough Newsies. When she sees Wicked, she would see Glinda as a fairy princess especially at the bubble dress- Aurora is quite innocent and naive even though they would be seeing Wicked close to age 11.
This is true about Aurora and Jasmine- they have a similar sisterly friendship that Elsa and Anna have. Jasmine is fiercely protective of Aurora especially since their parents died. Aurora, on the other hand, is more curious, innocent, and naive. Wouldn’t be surprised on how much they would love Frozen.
As a matter of fact, all of the orphans in GD would love Wicked due to the strong friendship they have. They are like sisters in so many ways.
Ayra- yes I barley know her. But I keep on having this feeling that she is a warrior-type character. So, she would probably love take a liking the most to the more emotional musicals. I think her favorite musical would probably be Les Misérables. Considering the time period. I mean one of the main aspects of Les Mis is the uprising. I think Ayra knows what its like to be different- so I think she would take a liking to Wicked as well and even Newsies. I really think she would be drawn to musicals that do take a focus on the underdogs.
Yes, I didn’t use all of my characters. At least, I was able to use my main characters from all of these WIPS.
