     Vicki Carpenter

Played By: Wendy Lyon

     Craig Nordham

Played By: Louis Ferreira

  • Break the Cutie: The apparent death of his increasingly bizarre-acting girlfriend drives him to despair.
  • Book Dumb: His lack of urgency to attend university comes across as a patient desire for worldly experience.

     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 peer 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.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Josh.
  • 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.
  • Death Glare: After sadly calling Josh a bastard, masks her humiliation with one.
  • Genki Girl: Quite a bubbly lass.
  • 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 ignominiously knocked to the floor and stabbed in the stomach by a falling neon light.
  • 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.
  • 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.

     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.

     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.
