Abby Puryear, “Social Butterfly”
Abby’s friends would say she’s a hopeless romantic. She loves chocolate and anything with cheese. She has got a passion for fashion. Give her a winter day with hot chocolate, fuzzy socks, and a cheesy Hallmark Christmas movie, that’s her perfect day. She lives her life like a real life.
Charley Hart, “The Film Gal”
Charley is a freshman at Freeman High School. She is a Chipotle, theatre, and Dan Howell enthusiast. Charley also has an unhealthy obsession with guacamole, romantic movies, Leonardo DiCaprio, and the internet.
Darren Badley, “Walking Jukebox”
This is Darren's first year in 4th Wall. He is a junior who is obsessed with all things music and theatre, as his title insists. He enjoys spending his time belting out different songs and watching Netflix. He is really excited to be working with such a great team of people.
Eden Johnson: “The Encyclopedia”
Eden is always available if you need random facts about Broadway, Marvel, or Harry Potter. She's a 9th grader in the IB program at Midlothian High School. This is her first year in 4th Wall. When she's not obsessing over Broadway, she can be found writing and starring in plays and musicals.
Elle Lockett, “The Cathartic Lemon Drop”

Jordan is a senior at Meadowbrook High School, and is ecstatic because this is his first year of the 4th Wall Leadership Program.
