About the show
About the Characters
A note about casting: Casting priority will be given to 8th-12th graders and college-aged individuals. The ages noted next to the character should be used to imagine who that character is, but we are not seeking to cast actors that are the same age as the character. We are seeking to cast actors that can portray those ages.
Also, possible doubling is noted, but not required.
