BREAKDOWN


***Please note that the roles of Principal/Preacher and Alneesa/Teacher will be doubled.

Tino12, Black, Male -An oddball who gets picked on a lot at school. He's brilliant but diffident, so accustomed to being beat downor "put in his place" that he doesn't know how to engage people if it's not awkwardly.

Teacher30's - 40's, Any ethnicity, but probably African American, Any gender (but probably Female) -Voiceover. More important for her to seem right than be right. Doubled with the role of Alneesa.

Alneesa30's, Black, Female -Tino's aunt. Real wry sense of humor that often borders on cruelty. She's justifiably resentful over having totake care of a kid that she didn't ask for. Doubled with the role of Teacher.

Principal40's - 60's, POC, Any gender -Voiceover. Probably started this job as an idealist, but is now just trying to get through the day withoutthrowing a kid out the window. Doubled with the role of Preacher.

Preacher40's - 60's, Black, Male -Voiceover. Sincere, urgent, full of fire. Doubled with the role of Principal.

Deja12, Black, Black Puerto Rican-American, African-American or Latinx, Afro-Latinx,Female -A bit of a bulldozer and a little rough around the edges-- like even her love can be abrasive-- but she'sride-or-die loyal.

Bernadettelate 50's-mid 70's, Black, Female -No-nonsense. No edit button either. Done with these kids. Except for Tino. He's alright.
