Character Breakdown

Chip Tolentino
An athletic, social, boy scout and champion of the Twenty-Fourth Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, he returns to defend his title, but he finds puberty hitting at an inopportune moment.
Logainne Schwartzandgrubeniere (Schwartzy)

Logainne is the youngest and most politically aware speller, often making comments about current political figures. She is driven by internal and external pressure, but above all by a desire to win to make her two fathers proud. She is somewhat of a neat freak, speaks with a lisp, and will be back next year.

Leaf Coneybear
The second runner-up in his district, Leaf gets into the competition on a lark and finds everything about the bee incredibly amusing. He is home-schooled and comes from a large family of former hippies. He has severe Attention Deficit Disorder and spells words correctly while in a trance.

William Barfee
A Putnam County Spelling Bee finalist last year, he was eliminated because of an allergic reaction to peanuts and is back for vindication. His famous "Magic Foot" method of spelling has boosted him to spelling glory, even though he only has one working nostril and a touchy, bullying personality. He develops a crush on Olive.

Marcy Park
The ultimate over-achiever, Marcy has never been given another option. She comes from a family where excellence is expected and so simply produced. A parochial school student, she assumes God, too, expects perfection. She sees herself as a mass of problems but she keeps them to herself. Having moved often because of her parents' work, she knows she can beat the local competition. Her many talents include piano, dance, martial arts, baton twirling, and/or whatever special gifts you can find in your casting pool.

Olive Ostrovsky
A young newcomer to competitive spelling. Her mother is in an ashram in India, and her father is working late, as usual, but he is trying to come sometime during the bee. Having found comfort in its words and vastness, Olive made friends with her dictionary at a very young age, helping her to make it to the competition. She starts enormously shy, and shyly blossoms.

Rona Lisa Peretti
The number-one realtor in Putnam County, a former Putnam County Spelling Bee Champion herself, and the returning moderator. She is a sweet woman who loves children, but she can be very stern when it comes to dealing with Vice Principal Panch and his feelings for her. Her interest in the competition is unflagging and drives it forward.

Douglas Panch
The Vice Principle. Frustrated with his life, he finds the drive of the young spellers alien to him. After five years' absence from the Bee, Panch returns as judge. There was an "incident" at the Twentieth Annual Bee, but he claims to be in "a better place" now, thanks to a high-fiber diet and Jungian analysis. He is infatuated with Rona Lisa Peretti, but she does not return his affections.

Mitch Mahoney
The Official Comfort Counselor. An ex-convict, Mitch is performing his community service with the Bee, and hands out juice boxes to losing students. He has no idea how to offer comfort, but does find himself wishing he could find a way to make the kids feel better.
 
Carl Dad
Schwarzy's main trainer, the more intense and competitive of Schwarzy's fathers. Normally played by actor playing Leaf.
 
Dan Dad
the more laid back and ineffectual of Schwarzy's fathers. Normally played by the actor playing Mitch.
 
Jesus Christ
Deity invoked by a speller in need. Normally played by the actor playing Chip.

Leaf's Mom, Dad, And Siblings
All more academically gifted than Leaf, they are even more surprised than he is by his success. Normally played by the spellers and audience volunteers as indicated in the script.

Olive's Dad
A fantasy version of Olive's dad coming to the bee from work. Normally played by the actor playing Mitch.

Olive's Mom
A fantasy version of Olive's mom at her Ashram in India. Normally played by the actor playing Rona.

IMPROVING YOUR
ACTING SKILLS!

We are often asked by students and parents how a student actor can improve. 
Below is a list of ideas.

1.       Attend shows!

You do not need to travel to New York to see a good show.  There are many
opportunities to 
see shows right here in the Lakes Region.  Watch the paper for
shows at other middle and high schools.  There are several community theaters
in the area:  The Winnipesaukee Players,  Streetcar Company, The Village
Players and The Little Church Theater. 

If you expand the region from Plymouth to Concord, you could see a show every weekend.  

Can’t afford to attend live theater?  You can find many shows on YouTube.

2.       Audition, A LOT!

Every audition is a chance to hone your skills.  Even if you do not get a role
you will learn by seeing what different directors and music directors look for
when you audition for them.

3.       Do more than just school shows!

You wouldn’t expect to become a concert pianist, NFL quarterback, or bestselling
author without lots of practice.  You can’t improve your stage skills in just two
shows a year.  The community theaters listed above often have shows that are
open to students.  The Winnipesaukee Playhouse has a program for children and
a program for teens.  They also have a summer internship program for teens as
does the Interlakes Summer Theater.  Check out their websites for more
information.

4.       Take voice lessons!

Raw skill is great but we all know it takes training and practice to develop talent. 
A voice teacher can help you improve your range, teach you proper techniques,
recommend songs for auditions and help you learn to deliver a song well.

Can’t afford voice lessons?  Join a choir.  You can learn a lot about proper
breathing, harmony, and technique by singing with a choir.

Just remember, singing pop, country or rock music is different from singing
for musical theater.

5.       Take dance lessons

Raw skill is great but we all know it takes training and practice to develop talent. 
A dance teacher will teach you proper technique, improve your rhythm and balance.

Can’t afford dance lessons?  You can find plenty of dance lessons online. 

Just remember, hip-hop, modern, and ballet are different from dancing
for musical theater.

Basically, the answer to this question is
PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE!
