About the show:
Best friends Leah and Zoey have been inseparable since kindergarten. They like all the same things: soccer, tacos, and well, soccer. As their teacher Madame LaGrange is always saying, they’re two peas in la pod! But now that they’re in Grade five, Leah would rather spend more time posting pics with mega fashionista Makayla than on the soccer field. It makes Zoey wonder… Maybe their shared interests aren’t so shared after all? This new comedy from the author of the Green Thumb hit, WHAT IF, takes a closer look at how young people can become more obsessed with how they’re seen online than how they’re seen “IRL”, and explores what happens when two friends start to grow up and grow apart. Join Zoey and Leah as they try to navigate the pressures of finding out who they are in an increasingly virtual world and try to understand how to not only accept the changes in their evolving friendships, but how to embrace them.
Roles to be cast:
Zoey -- 11-years-old. Leah’s best friend. Gregarious, the life of the party, class clown. She wears grass-stained denim and loves soccer.
Character will be portrayed by adult actor.
All other roles have been cast.
