Shy and sensitive, Ben takes a while to open up to strangers and when he’s not online prefers the company of his two besties Karly and Evie. He’s super organised – bordering on OCD. He’s attracted to other guys but so far hasn’t shared this with anyone else.
Karly is a classic tomboy and an ambitious soccer player having been selected for the state under 17s. When the headphones are on she’s listening to alt-rock, and music is her favourite subject. When they’re off she’s working her vulgar sense of humour on anybody within earshot.
Usually melodramatic, Evie can be a real drama queen although it’s often the consequence of dubious life choices. To be honest, she has a reputation of being a bit of a tramp! Evie can always find Ben’s shoulders for comfort in the rare occasion she needs support.
Ethan has a dark past and disguises it well beneath his boy-next-door appearance. He’s seen as a bit of an outsider when out with a larger crowd however his true self shines when he’s one on one.
Seriously intelligent, Amanda can be a self-centred bitch at times.
Music teacher and Karly’s mentor. Ms Pearson’s continually reporting to the Principal’s office.
Ms Karras would rather be on the stage than in the drama classroom.
Ben’s fantasy. He says he has a girlfriend.
His operatic teaching style brings life to a boring subject.
