Character Descriptions and Notes (Storyline):
“Campfire Stories” follows four women through four chapters of their friendship, beginning with their final night at the summer camp where they met as young girls. We follow them through four defining moments in their relationships, interspersed with “campfire stories” told by each character revealing the secrets that keep them together and those that keep them apart.
[SHANIA] Female, 20-30, All Ethnicities. Powerful, but delicate. Beautiful in a “granola” kind of way. A hilarious, empowered but insecure flower child prone to abusive relationships. She is the Matriarch of the group. LEAD
[AMBER] Female, 20-30, All Ethnicities. Uniquely gorgeous. A sexual assault survivor wildly afraid of being cookie-cutter, she likes to shock people and “be different”. LEAD
[TESS] Female, 20-30, All Ethnicities. Pretty, but plain. Physically and emotionally weak. Very smart but socially awkward, a people-pleaser who keeps her struggles to herself. LEAD
[TRUDY] Female, 20-30, All Ethnicities. Sexy. Experienced. People are attracted to her and she knows how to manipulate that to her advantage. Self-possessed with a hard shell. LEAD
[MAN] Male, 20-40, All Ethnicities. Strong physical presence. Stage Movement required. Plays multiple roles, embodying all of the male roles in the stories told by the women. SUPPORTING
