The Characters

Hosts

These two people will guide the audience through the show. They open each season change and share pieces of God’s story to bring everything together.

Main Characters (four friends) – Zach, Ben, Alicia, Ella

  • Zach: he’s pretty gung-ho – he’s all boy. He will always be wearing a rival sports team shirt in every scene for consistency.
  • Ben: he wears glasses and is smartly dressed – he’s not nerdy, but definitely intelligent.
  • Alicia: she is fairly anxious, but really wants to do the right thing.
  • Ella: she is a friendly, outgoing, people-person.

The script is written to watch these four friends as they grow. Based on cast size you could have up to 16 different people casted. Our performance involved 12. The grouping we utilized was 4 kids for Scene 1, 4 new kids slightly older for Scenes 2 and 3, and the oldest group of 4 for Scene 4.

Minor parts

  • Scene 1 – a group of kids to create a playground scene, these are non-speaking roles.
  • Scene 2 – 8 kids, each with one line.
  • Scene 3 – a group of kids to create a playground scene, these are non-speaking roles.
