Seeking only the following LEAD roles at this time.

[ALLIE] Female, Caucasian, 16 – Artistic, introverted, & internally rebellious, Allie is a kind-hearted teenager caught in difficult circumstances. Allie wants a better life for herself, but her father’s absence has had a great impact on her, and when she faces a severe trauma, Allie isolates herself even further, turning to drugs to cope. While she longs to be older and dresses the part, her rage and need for acceptance are that of a typical high school sophomore.

[BETTY] Female, Caucasian, late 30s to late 40s – A hard working single mother with two jobs who struggles to pay the bills every month. The stress of single motherhood has taken a toll on this once vibrant woman. Betty loves her daughter deeply and is concerned by the changes she sees in Allie. Allie’s therapy process is a catalyst for several of Betty’s unresolved emotional scars to surface.
