Character Bios (Seeking young adults who could appear to be high-school-aged)

Stella – (Female 18-25)

The main protagonist from South City, St. Louis. She is the guitarist, singer, and primary songwriter for the girls’ pop punk band. She’s a little naive and a hopeless romantic, but her optimism is admirable and not for mockery in tone. She meets Noah at a bougie party in West County, and it’s love at first site.

Skills preferred: Singing and Guitar

___________________________________

Noah – (Male 18-25)

Protagonist from “Upper Ladue”. Although wealthy, he is blissfully ignorant to his status. Noah is the lead singer of his friends “boyband”. He romanticizes the past, particularly through music, viewing it as a much more wholesome period that prioritized love and art opposed to greed. Like Stella, he is a hopeless romantic, but is often unconsciously self-absorbed.

Skills preferred: Singing and Guitar

___________________________________

Luca – (Female 18-25)

The drummer of the girls’ band, a bit of a ditz, but has a heart of gold.

Skills preferred: Novice level drumming

___________________________________

Jessie -(African American female 18-25)

Bassist of the girls’ band, all attitude, fearless, but can be a clown sometimes.

___________________________________

Renee – (Female 18-25)

Guitarist for the band, best friend of Jessie, and the unelected leader of the group. She’s unafraid to speak her mind.

Skills preferred – Guitar and Singing

____________________________________

Kenny – (Male 18-25)

The tenor of the boys’ group. Charismatic, he’s Noah’s best friend, sensitive, understanding, and also passionate about film.

Skills preferred – Singing

____________________________________

Ted – (Male 18-25)

The bass of the boys’ group. The song of “old money” Ted has a sense of entitlement, but an undying drive for music, like his friends. He’s more business-oriented in his pursuit, often jealous of Noah’s level of talent.

Skills preferred – Singing

____________________________________

Charlie – (Male 18-25)

The baritone of the boys’ group. A handsome James Bond wannabe, Charlie tries to act suave, occasionally overcompensating.
