Character Breakdown –
PIPI – Female, 18 to 25 but looks high school age (14 to 17). Must be able to rap, sing (pop mezzo) and dance and passably mimic playing guitar. Pipi is the thoughtful one and the primary narrator. By-the-book and the ringleader when things need to get back on track.
TRAPPER – Male, 18 to 25 but looks high school age (14 to 17). Must be able to rap, sing (pop tenor) and dance and passably mimic running a DJ rig. Technical prowess with electronics a plus. Trapper is the techno-geek. Also serves as on-stage, back-up engineer/tech. Little dialogue but vocals on songs.
KENA – Female, 18 to 25 but looks high school age (14 to 17). Must be able to rap, sing (pop mezzo) and dance and passably mimic playing guitar. Kena is quirky, but level and is the secondary narrator to Pipi, often trading places with PIPI when imparting information. She is Stitch’s primary foil with the two engaging in playful repartee.
STITCH – Male, 18 to 25 but looks high school age (14 to 17). Must be able to rap, sing (pop tenor) and dance and passably mimic playing guitar and percussion instruments. Stitch is the goof-ball, comic relief, but is no dummy.
