  1. Ty'aonnia Broadnax

    Hey I’m Tyaonnia Broadnax, I’m 13 years old, people often tell me I look older then my age! I’m 5,6, I have hazel brown eyes, and I wear fake hair but willing to use any color. I have always been told I was a drama queen! I played in many school plays such as Christmas Carol, Peter Pan and Princess and the Pea. I would love to be part of this film. My goal as an actress is to make it real. To make the people who watch it feel where I’m coming from and know the direction I’m going, I want them to be inspired. I would love to audition for the part of CLARISSA SULLIVAN if I could, please and thank you.

  2. Geneveve Robbins

    Hi, my name is Geneveve Robbins, I’m 15 (but have been told multiple times I seem 18 or older), I’m 5’6, and have blonde hair. I have been acting since I was 4, and have starred in plays such as The Wizard Of Oz, Shrek, Blithe Spirit, Alice in Wonderland, and Peter Pan. I would love to be a part of this project and get to work with new people. My goal as an actress is to bring the writer’s and director’s vision to life. I would love to audition for the part of Clarissa and help you make your vision a reality.
