Strong belter. All Ethnicities.

Ellie Blake: Female, 16. The hero of the story. A rumpled, disorganized “everygirl.” She is smart, funny, and passionate about her school’s underground scavenger hunt, but sees herself as a “Whats-her-name,” and easily forgotten, unlike her “perfect” mom. Must also portray Katherine in Ellie’s body. Strong belter. All Ethnicities

Savannah: Female, 16-10. The villain. Brilliant, aggressive, a winner. All ethnicities.

Torrey: Female, 20’s+. Katherine’s assistant — a high strung perfectionist. All ethnicities.
