The characters and storylines grew from my one-act play Stay.
Here is what the show is about:
All about the performing arts students at Avalon Performing Arts Academy, Drama Queens is an independent television series that explores the young artist's life. Fed up with the superficiality that surrounds her, aspiring actress Allison Freeman decides to make drastic changes in her life, starting with forgiving the absent mother she hasn't heard from in five years. Cracking under the pressure from being the daughter of the high school principal, diva-in-training Raquel is finding it impossible to meet the high expectations of her demanding mother. Tired of being the glue that keeps her family together, Sofia Mendoza embarks on an emotional journey of self-discovery and seeks comfort in her complicated friendship with Rindy Sinclair, the non-conforming star of every school musical. Intervening and inspiring when she can, Penelope Garrison is the high school guidance counselor with the best intentions, who is soon overwhelmed by the complicated lives of her students.
