VERONICA SAWYER – She burns to be both cool and kind, but doesn’t know yet how to be both at the same time. Fierce sense of right and wrong, keen sense of ironic humor. Thinks she’s an old soul, but she’s still innocent enough to be blindsided by love/hormones (or shocked by cruelty).
JD – He is darkly charismatic, compelling, attractive, charming on the outside yet very damaged on the inside. Keen smarts and strong inventive comedy.
HEATHER CHANDLER – Richest, hottest, most magnetic, cruelest girl in town. Relishes power and wields it like a scalpel – no fear, no patience, no mercy.
HEATHER MCNAMARA – Beautiful, innocent, stupid, can be mean on command if Heather Chandler orders it, but actually quite vulnerable and fearful.
HEATHER DUKE – Whipping-girl of the 3 Heathers. When she finally becomes Queen Bee she wields power like a bulldozer.
MARTHA DUNNSTOCK – Nicknamed “Martha Dumptruck”, the opposite of hot, confident, or popular. Huge and beautiful soul, optimistic even in the face of rejection.
RAM SWEENEY – Linebacker. Big, insensitive to the feelings of others, ruled by appetites.
KURT KELLY – Quarterback and Captain. Big, chiseled, rude, entitled, cocky. Mean, thinks he’s the brains in the friendship with Ram.
RAM’S DAD – Former football player turned suburban Dad, has never outgrown his glory days in high school. Hates weakness, but capable of soul-searching when tragedy strikes.
BIG BUD DEAN – JD’s single Dad. Big jolly personality that barely conceals the enormous rage bubbling just below the surface. Quite possibly a serial bomber.
COACH RIPPER – Stalwart, man’s man; quick to defend his players.
MS. FLEMING – Aging hippie teacher, still yearning for the day the Age of Aquarius reaches Ohio. Hungry for the spotlight, resentful of entitled youth.
VERONICA’S MOM – easygoing, distant, yet capable of laying down the law.
KURT’S DAD – Straight-laced, very conservative, also former football player. A simple guy, not book smart, you’d be happy to share a beer with him.
VERONICA’S DAD – Easygoing and distant.
PRINCIPAL GOWAN – Rumpled, burned out, hates conflict.
