Roles & Requirements

TA’SHEENA/FEMALE/AGE 14-21:
Ta’Sheena is a girl with way too much responsibility at home. She takes care of her little sister and brother and makes sure she looks after herself. So at school and with her friends she’s all about fun. She’s a kid at heart with a tough exterior. Ta’sheena nice, but has a temper. She’s an extremely gifted musician but doesn’t want anyone to know because it makes her stand out from the crowd.  While she yearns for love and acceptance but doesn’t know how to get it. She laughs easily and it’s hard to tell when something is bothering her.

LITTLE TA’SHEENA/FEMALE/AGE 7-10
Younger version of Ta’Sheena

CHERELLE/FEMALE/AGE 25-45:
Cherelle is Ta’Sheena’s mother. She had Ta’Sheena young so she tries to get her party time in and “live her life” every chance she gets. She loves her kids, but she raises them as she was raised, hard. It’s no room in this world for any more punks, especially not her kids. She doesn’t understand her daughter and mostly she gets on her nerves, but deep down she’s worried she will end up just like her; stuck, with a bunch of kids.

Available Roles

BRITTANY/FEMALE/AGE 14-21:
Brittany is a know-it-all and the leader of her friends. Her and Ta’Sheena have been friends since 1st Grade. Some people may call her fast, but she just knows what she wants. She has all the trendiest clothes and stays with her hair done. School comes easy to her, she doesn’t get how people fail, “It’s just so easy!” She’s always into something and doesn’t let life weigh her down.

TT/FEMALE/AGE 14-21:
TT loves her friends Brittany and Ta’Sheena and would do just about anything for them. School is her favorite part of the day because it’s where she gets to see all her friends. Home is a scary place for her but she keeps that part of her life secret and covers it up with always being happy and down for a good time. You need a partner for an adventure? She’s your girl!

MS. ROBERTS/FEMALE/AGE 25-40:
Ms. Roberts works at Ta’Sheena’s school. She attended Ta’Sheena’s school when she was a little girl and grew up in the neighborhood. She’s someone who made it good and “got out”. She has a personal commitment to the kids she works with and is really pushing Ta’Sheena to do her best. She understands the student’s struggles because they were once her own, but she looks and sounds nothing like where she came from.

More Roles

MR. BROWN/MALE/AGE 50-60:
Older White man. Mr. Brown has been a teacher at Ta’Sheena’s school for over 25 years. The students now are just “different” and he struggles to understand why it’s so difficult to get them to listen. He’s frustrated but truly cares for his students.

MR. PHILIPS/MALE/AGE 35-50:
Mr. Philips is passionate about music and tries, sometimes in vain, to get his students to share the same enthusiasm. He understands the pressures that the students face and tries to get them to see how music can help. He cultivates Ta’Sheena’s natural gift with music

BYRON/MALE/AGE 25-40:
Byron has had a lot of disappointments in his life but he’s always been a smooth talker. If anything is too hard for him he gives up, he doesn’t put much effort into anything. He met Ta’Sheena’s mom at the club and things grew from there, he didn’t mind that she already had kids. Now that they have a daughter together things have gotten more serious. He’s pretty bored in the relationship, but nothing better has come along.

Child and Adult Roles

MAN-MAN/MALE/AGE 5-7:
He is Ta’Sheena’s little brother and loves his big sister and his mama. He relies on Ta’Sheena for just about everything.

BOO/FEMALE/AGE 25-40:
Butch, looking lesbian. She is one of Cherelle’s close friends, people in the neighborhood talk about just how “close” they really are. She takes care of her biz, but is always there if Cherelle needs her.

PJ/MALE/AGE 14-21:
Easy on the eyes but low key. He’s not the guy that every girl likes-likes, but everybody thinks he’s super cool. He’s smart, calculated, and stays out of trouble. We can tell he comes from a good family. He’s humble, and the type of person that will notice if you’re having a bad day if no one else does.

TYLER/MALE/AGE 14-21:
Opposite of PJ, he’s the tallest of the boys in his grade and all the girls like him. He does his “thang” outside of school too, which gives him a little extra cash that he flashes around school. He thinks he knows everything but really knows nothing at all.

RASHAD/MALE/AGE 14-21:
Friends with Pj and Tyler, he’s the jokester of the group.

More Adult Roles

MISS MARY/FEMALE/AGE 45-60:
She makes the kids look forward to breakfast and lunch.  Miss Mary prepares each meal with love and babies each child. She understands this may be the only meal most of these kids eat and makes sure they get served up a side of love with their plate.

MRS. SIMMONS/FEMALE/AGE 45-60:
Older White Woman. The dean of students for Ellington Performing Arts Academy; whip smart with a keen sense of spotting talent.

MR. JAMES/MALE/AGE 45-60:
Heavy-set White man with a mustache. On the committee for intake for Ellington Performing Arts Academy, Mrs. Simmons right hand man.

    Hi, I’m kenza. I am fourtheen years old and i live in belgium.
    I speak four languages, Dutch, French, Arabic and English, but I can speak English quickly, but I think I have a Belgian accent, can you? I do not know but I will do everything to make sure that English will look like my native language

    I would like to play BRITANNY or TT. That would look very nice to me !!
    Not Ta’Sheena because I think I’m not so good at music and stuff like that. But for the two other roles I would like to play with pleasure.

    I like acting,let’s say I love doing something that I feel good about. Acting is very important to me to show what I can do. Watching, understanding and analyzing a film, I love it !! I just love all kinds of movies let’s say that;) When I was a child I had a lot of imagination … like being a prinsses (hahha) being a bos of a candy factory, becoming a singer or an actress to become. Every year there will always be a dream that I will not want to dream anymore. But acting, acting is always remains my number one greatest dream. People who know me ,know that I would like to be an actress, they ask me : to act will mean a hobby or a cariere for you. My answer to that is very simple, if people give me the chance to shine my hobby through the cameras to cinemas it will even bring a cariere. I hope that people will understand that acting is not equal to a bread crumb, acting is just so important to me so much that there are no words for existence. And now I hope to act behind a camera at least once in my life. I will be honest with you, I did not have any acting lessons and I never had acting in a theater. But with the help of watching movies I can easily motivate myself. When I find a movie incredible well-behaved, I go on youtube and watch the “behind the scenes” videos.

    And When I watch these videos, I realize how much I like acting because when I watch the “behind the scenes” videos, I focus the most on the acting of the actors. Because I think it’s just something very beautiful that other people can make happy. Generally when I look at the behind the scenes videos, I feel very good at all, watching these videos can help me understand, to understand how the actors prepare behind the scenes. There are many people who do not like horror movies or do not like adventures movies but I’m someone who likes all kinds of movies !! Really ,does not matter what, who or how to play something or someone, just that if I can act, makes me happy enough !!

    Acting is a craft, A profession, An art.
    It is something you have to work hard at,
    Not something you just naturally fall into by virtue of genes.
    Acting is something you must develop, keep working to improve and continually learn.

    Hello, since I was a little girl I looked up to Acting very much, but only now I’m confident enough to actually do something to accomplish my dreams, in general I’m confident but as this would be a big step in life for me I doubted that I would actually get where I wanted. Everybody has dreams, everybody wants to be famous, but for me popularity isn’t what I’m looking for, I want to start my career as an actor because I find it very inspiring for people, and who knows, maybe you’ll learn something from it, no, I’m sure you will. I am willing to do anything for the sake of achieving my dreams, I dedicated my life to that.I find myself in TT, that’s why I would love to play the role of her, I am confident enough that I will do an amazing job at it. Thank you for your time, you can contact me anytime at my email for any further questions.

    I’m 15. I’m from small country Latvia (Baltic states) which is next to Russia. I know i am far away from USA, but i love movies,i love TV Shows, i love actors and actreses. Since i was little, i’ve always played with myself – thinking that i’m some kind of celebrity in USA and playing a bunch of movies. I never thought why i did that, until i had to think what i want to be in the future. Then i got it. I love to act and i wish i could be an actress. Why i actually want to be an actress? – because i want to inspire other Kids and People. I’m not very good at math or anything like that, so my only chance is to acting. I don’t want to do it because of the money. But because i know there are a lots of Kids Who are not so smart in school and they don’t know what to do in their lifes. So, i want to Show them that i have the same story and that they have another chance. I have to start this acting at some point, if i’ll just sit at home and Will tell everyone that i want to be an actress, nothing is going to happen.
    Long story short – help me. USA needs a lot of New actors. Give a chance to a Kids Who are from such a small country’s. I am Linda Gulbe and i want to be an actress in USA and UK and international. I would love to take any role in this movie.
