All ethnicities are encouraged to audition.
All characters are aged in their early to mid 20’s.

HADLEY, the loud and charismatic de facto leader of the group. He is the architect of the road trip and carries a secret for his tenacity for being on the road.
CHARLIE, has a hard time letting go of an ex-girlfriend and uses the trip as an opportunity to move on from the past, assuming he doesn’t make an awful mistake in the process.
FRANKIE, a sweet girl who has had a secret love for Hadley all through college and decides that this road trip is her last chance to tell him how she feels.
MICAH, a bubbly dancer who is the voice of reason on the trip. This character also plays a character named “Alyssa” in a scene of the show.
COLE, a young man who has always lived under the shadow of his parents and decides to go on the road trip for the first time making a choice for himself. His parents want him to be a doctor or lawyer and the trip serves as a chance for him to find a life for himself.
