Shane: The lighting designer and Charlie's best friend. He is a bit insensitive and tends to make the wrong choices. 
Cody: The endearingly awkward sound designer. He is usually quiet, because he tends to babble/say the wrong thing when he talks.
Tristan: In charge of hair and make-up and some choreography. He is friendly, caring, and very observant. He acts as the 'listening ear' for everyone in the drama club.
Becky: The blunt, no-nonsense stage manager.
Arianna: Shane's egotistical, rude ex-girlfriend.
Pike: Tristan's boyfriend and the lead actor in the 'musical'.
Gabe: A popular jock who is not in the drama club.
