Character Descriptions

  • AMANDA - A quiet little girl who is sad and angry. Her pent-up feelings tend to set her apart from the other kids. Strong singer, comfortable with harmony.
  • ADAM - A small, shy boy who is often getting “picked-on” by other kids. He wants very much to get along with everybody and tries very hard to “fit in” but gets discouraged when he is “left out.” Strong singer and actor.
  • BETHANY - An adorable little girl who likes being the “teacher’s pet.” She mimics the motions of the teacher and is often right next to her, watching. She always carries a large doll whom she “teaches.”
  • BARRY - An extremely smart, very serious boy who wears a jacket and tie and often uses big words. He usually gets along with the other students, but sometimes finds them too immature.
  • CLAUDINE - A precocious, “street smart” girl who dress and acts the way she believes a teenager would. She is well liked by the other students and is so confident that she believes she can outwit adults.
  • CHUCK - A tough, aggressive boy who is the class “bully.” He is well liked, or feared by most of the other kids, but picks on many of them anyway. He’s not really mean, but is sometimes rude to the teacher.
  • DANIELLE- A loud and assertive little girl who acts very immaturely. She dresses very nicely and is apparently from a wealthy family. She is prone to “temper tantrums” and is used to getting what she wants.
  • DAVID - A dreamy, imaginative little boy who has trouble concentrating and is easily distracting. He is very popular and is friendly with everyone. He doesn’t like schoolwork very much -- he would rather be playing!  Good with comedy.
  • ELLEN - A very sweet little girl who is a bit clueless. She is friendly and extremely popular. She often says things that have nothing to do with anything in particular but are amusing just the same. She is very kind.
  • EDDIE - A hyperactive boy who is the “class clown.” He acts silly and is eager to make others laugh. He does and says strange things and cannot keep still for very long. Comedic actor.
  • ENSEMBLE roles are available as well!

*Note: Girls may be cast in male roles. In this case, the gender of the role will be changed.
