ABOUT REAL LIFE IN DURHAM PUBLIC SCHOOLS?

BETWEEN THE BELLS An Original Play Written by Jenny Justice. And developed in ongoing collaboration with students from middle & high schools and colleges in Boston, Mass. And Durham, NC
HISPANIC/LATINO ACTOR ROLES AVAILABLE ARE:
§ Olivia Maria Hernandez – 10th grade – From Mexican background. Smart. Quietly outgoing. She goes unnoticed by teachers until they see her high grades. She goes unnoticed by students until they realize she can help them in class and that she is fun. She is a pastel artist.
§ Joseph Muñoz- 10th grade. Born in Mexico, moved to the US when he was 6-years-old. His mother left his father 8 years ago; his father now lives in Mexico with his new wife and daughter. JOSEPH remembers the death of an uncle who used to take him to bars and dogfights when he was five. He is furious. He is also incredibly sweet and wants to please. He is torn between his gentle nature, his early lead poisoning. He has been incorrectly diagnosed with and medicated for ADHD.
§ Enrico Gomez – 10th grade – A friendly young man. He is smart and has taught himself enough English to make good grades. When he doesn’t understand, he cheats shamelessly, because no one is helping him or his friends with English. He enjoys his status as a leader in the Hispanic community at school. He is a trickster, in the style of Wylie Coyote, Pan and Puck, a satyr.
