Character Descriptions

Rona Peretti Age Range 35 plus. Rona is a loving person who really believes in the spelling bee competitions. She won the third annual competition. She gets unwanted attention from the vice principal and is very straight with him. She holds everything and everyone together. She is like a mum figure to the other characters.  

Vice Principal Douglas Panch Age range 40 plus He is infatuated with Rona. He is rather laid back and doesn’t really understand why people would want to put themselves through this. He is quick witted and likes to make fun of others for his own amusement. He does want to do well though in his role as he wants to impress Rona. No singing apart from group songs.  

Olive Ostrovsky Age range 18-35 Olive is a very shy character. She is always looking out to the audience to see if her dad will turn up to support her. She loves words and they are her best friend. She is an only child.  

William Barfee Age range 18-35 He has a lot of health problems and a lot to prove. He is very determined to do well and doesn’t care for the others that much. This is due to him being picked on a lot and also not having affection from his father. The only person he trusts is his mum. During the musical he starts to care for another speller and goes on a bit of a journey with it.  

Logainne SchwartzandGrubenierre Age range 18-35 The youngest of all the competitions. She has a lisp and is uncomfortable in herself. She has two very demanding fathers who drill her with what she needs to do to succeed always. She is very aware of everything around her.  

Marcy Parks Age range 18-35 Marcy is an over achiever. Whatever she turns her mind to she will always be the best, as that is what is expected of her. She is from out of the area and knows she can beat the other competitors. She is very straight laced and will not relax till she wins.  

Leaf Coneybear Age range 18-35 Leaf doesn’t really know what is going on. He just goes with the flow and thinks everything is an adventure. He has attention deficit disorder but loves his wandering mind. He makes his own clothes. He doesn’t expect to do well but will give it his best.  

Chip Tolentino Age range 18-35 He is the reigning champion. He is athletic, and things come easy to him. Recently he has been going through some strange changes, body wise and feeling wise. He is a strong character  

Mitch Mahoney Age range: up to 45 Mitch is doing his community service. He gives juice boxes to anyone who gets knocked out of the competition.  He has a scary appearance and doesn’t want to be there.
