Characters:

Rayna – A focused student and peer leader – since being ostracized from her friend group, she’s spending more and more of her time with a friend she met online, but whom she knows very little about.

Zumi – A warm, friendly goofball whose appetite for mischief occasionally ventures into the cruel. He obsesses over his shoes and stylish appearance.

Antony – Spends most of his time carefully curating his trending youtube channel, “Bacon Tacos,” and trying to keep up with his various online personas. Doesn’t care much for what’s happening IRL.

Hattie - Used to be friends with Rayna, until they grew apart. Hattie guards her precarious popularity fiercely, and lashes out at anyone who threatens it.

Performers will portray middle school students and should therefore read “young.” Performers of all ethnicities and genders are encouraged to apply.
