Characteristics/Notes:
Voice Range: Medium-Low; English Accent

James Alby is a young man from "across the pond" (as they say in England). he is a jovial, happy young man that doesn't let anything get to him. He is shown to have a lot of confidence even if he's viewed as "the fat kid" in his homeroom. He is often the person that's quick to stand up for anyone who is being bullied. Despite the fact that he's often targeted by people, he wears his status as a "misfit" with pride to the point that people who try to bring him down end up getting angry and annoyed.

Me? Without any weak points? Sorry but I do have weak points. When people see me they see a tub of lard. They assume because I'm fat that I will roll over and cry if they call me names or point out that I can finish a whole buffet in under ten seconds."

Kellie O'Sullivan



NO

Name: Kellie O'Sullivan
Gender: Female
Age: Teenager
Characteristics/Notes:
voice type: High-Medium; Irish Accent

Kellie O'Sullivan is often the target of Shelly's bullying. The two girls had a falling out when Kellie's father went bankrupt and had to move the family into an apartment building. This has made Kellie as one of the prime targets for the popular group to make fun of.

Kellie used to be an outgoing and social girl with dreams of becoming a 5-star chef. However, after Shelly's constant bullying she has become shy, withdrawn and doesn't like socializing with anyone she doesn't trust. She barely has any friends but is often found tagging along with Kali (who is her next door neighbor). She mostly spends any time when not in her classes in the home economics room as a way to isolate herself from Shelly and the school's main population.

Kellie is in Miss Deet's homeroom.

HELP
  FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
• Why is there a limit to 4 active projects per member?
While a project owner is welcome to have as many active projects running as they wish outside BTVA, the limit is imposed because having too many active projects can be somewhat "unrealistic". We want those who are auditioning to feel that each project is getting the attention and quality it deserves given auditioners themselves are putting in their own time and effort. Once a project owner flags a project as "Completed", they are welcome to create a new project.
• Can I audition more than once for a character?
The system is built to allow ONE audition per character. This is to avoid having a number of auditions from the same member and making the project owner have to listen to all of them. For now, if you or the project owner wishes you to submit another audition, the project owner will need to "Delete" your audition. The project owner can do this in the "Edit Character/Manage Auditions" link.
• How do I flag a character as being Cast?
As a project owner you will see a "Edit Character/Manage Auditions" link for each character. Clicking it will allow you to Cast, Backup or Pass an audition. Casting a character will prevent new auditions from being submitted for that character.
• Why do I need a valid email address?
If you audition for a project and are cast in a role, you will notified by email.
