Millie - Supporting Lead
Millie is the friend that everyone would be lucky to have. Her energetic and optimistic energy shines but is often overlooked. Millie has recently moved to the city to pursue art studies. She is a people pleaser who is emotionally aware, though her blind loyalty to false idols such as Mel leads her astray.
Females, aged 18 to 26
Cleo - Supporting Lead
Cleo doesn’t care what anyone thinks, and she wants everyone to know it. She slips into a different persona with effortless style because she knows how people work. She knows what makes them tick, what they find attractive, and how to make them like her. Fun, social and extraverted, Cleo is one of those people who will bring her UE Boom to the beach because she can’t bear to be alone with her own thoughts.
Females, aged 18 to 31
Isaac - Supporting Lead
Issac can seem aloof and unreadable to others, talking in a deadpan monotone which makes him seem almost robotic. Issac is an introverted realist, he speaks only when he has something worth saying and sees little point in small talk.
Males, aged 18 to 28
Angus - Guest Episode
Angus is flamboyant, posh, fashionable and high-brow, he treats everyone with respect until they ask him for things, he is open to true friendships, but being in the networking game he is weary of those who just want to take advantage of him and his stature.
Males, aged 18 to 36
Bearded British middle aged man, caucasian, inspired by the ‘Charlie Bit My Finger’ Star. As a doting father, Toe Guy feels he has more to offer than being an amusing meme.
Males, aged 30 to 60
Shelley has abandoned her past life as an auto tune star, forging a successful career as a lawyer. Past and present Shelley are virtually unrecognisable from one another; a youthful early 2000’s youtube star and an imperious highly strung lawyer. An older actor capable of dynamically portraying these two wildly different facets of the same person will be required for this role.
Females, aged 25 to 50
Your classic MC, the consummate show person, loud, bombastic, theatrical. Any gender or ethnicity. Hunts for hash tag-able material, but tone deaf to anything beyond that. Thrives on clickbait material, classic Instagrammer, never shows any truth.
Anyone, aged 18 to 50
The typical sleazy soft boy that is contently “looking for the Juliet to his Romeo”. Spends every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night at night clubs hitting on girls and often says things like “I don’t normally do this”.
Males, aged 18 to 30
