Tomika barely speaks until she finally summons the courage to open her mouth and sing out, so we have to be blown away by her sound. This character is African American. Pop/Rock Singer who moves well. Ideally, children are under 5’2”. Must believably play ages 9-12. Also seeking an understudy. PRINCIPAL
