     Craig Nordham

Played By: Louis Ferreira

  • Cool Bike: Used in his Big Damn Heroes attempt.
  • Nice Guy: An amiable, caring young man.


     Mary Lou Maloney

Played By: Lisa Schrage, Wendy Lyon, Lorretta Bailey

     Father Cooper

Played By: Robert Lewis, Richard Monette

     Kelly Hennenlotter

Played By: Terri Hawkes

  • Alpha Bitch: Deconstructed. Revels in attention, and takes any opportunity for a jibe, however vicious, at Vicki, but is perfectly nice to most everyone else, and tries to bribe Josh to rig the votes in her favour. This, and her sad, defeated reaction to reading his price of fellatio, hint at insecurity.
  • Break the Cutie: With humiliation. And the trauma of seeing a charred corpse claw its way out of a bullet wound in the chest of her classmate.
  • Class Clown: Her self-aggrandisement has a playful comicality.
  • Death Glare: After sadly calling Josh a bastard, masks her humiliation with one.
  • Due to the Dead: Attends Jess's funeral and looks upset during it, but then shortly afterwards brings her up while insulting Vicki in a way not showing much respect.
  • Foil: Whereas Mary Lou receives peer adulation with calm self-assurance and is spectacularly killed onstage, Kelly jovially parades a front of self-confidence, feels she needs to rig the votes, and is knocked to the floor and stabbed in the stomach by a falling neon light without it even being revealing whether it killed her or not.
  • Genki Girl: Quite a bubbly lass.
  • Give Geeks a Chance: Subverted; while Josh wryly notes her higher social standing, she seems genuinely fond of him.
  • Hidden Depths: Grudgingly hints a forlorn insecurity. Also seems to be an ace at darts.
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: While outwardly cheerily confident of her popularity, her attempt to bribe Josh to rig the votes hints at a desperation for peer affirmation. On learning she went through with his price for nothing, she looks to be on the verge of tears.
  • I Just Want to Be Loved /I Just Want to Be Special: Implied by her presentation of her classmates with bell-adorned badges in pursuit of the prom queen vote, attempt to bribe Josh to rig the votes, and quiet devastation on having gone through with his price for nothing.
  • My God, What Have I Done?:
    • She's seen looking upset after Vicky is lying on the ground unresponsive after Kelly deliberately spiked her with a volleyball.
    • More ambiguously, she hurries away after Vicki tells at her for insulting Jess, possibly indicating guilt for this.
    • She's deeply upset looking after caning back to the dance floor following give Josh oral sex.
  • Pink Means Feminine: Wears pink gym clothes.
  • Product Placement: Likes her Diet Pepsi.
  • Shoo Out the Clowns: The emergence of Mary Lou’s charred corpse from a bullet wound in Vicki's chest has the usually buoyant Kelly speechless with horror.

     Josh Walker

Played By: Brock Simpson

  • Adorkable: Jovially exhibits his (ineffective) potato-powered radio, and makes (often lewd) quips.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: In exchange for his rigging of the votes, Kelly tells him to name his price, and is clearly hurt by his request for fellatio.
  • Came Back Wrong: Appears as an animate electrocuted corpse in a prop room sarcophagus, and isn't exactly his jolly old self.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Although his homemade radio could do with some work.
  • Genre Savvy: Albeit jokingly. "Linda Blairseville!"
  • Pervy Patdown: Jokingly threatens Kelly with one.
  • Shoo Out the Clowns: Is graphically electrocuted by his Mary Lou-possessed computer.

     Monica Waters

Played By: Beverley Hendry


     Jess Browning

Played By: Beth Gondek

  • Break the Cutie: Is tearfully distraught after having fallen unexpectedly pregnant. Later, alone in the art room, sadly tries on the prom regalia and, having enraged the spirit of Mary Lou, is brutally killed.
  • Mistaken for Suicidal: Her death is believed to have been self-inflicted due to having fallen pregnant.
  • Teen Pregnancy: Played for Drama. It's also implied to have been a while coming based on her comment that her mom makes her get tested every year.

     Walt Carpenter

Played By: Wendell Smith

     Virginia Carpenter

Played By: Judy Mahbey

  • The Fundamentalist: Austerely devout, and puritanically hostile to youthful high jinks and pleasures of the flesh.
  • My Beloved Smother: Can be overbearingly strict and controlling.
