Slasher by Allison Moore

Show dates: May 12-30, 2010


SHEENA McKINNEY 21, girl-next-door kind of pretty. Not book-smart, but a survivor.

HILDY McKINNEY 15, Sheenaâ??s little sister. Smarter than Sheena, but less capable in a crisis.

FRANCES McKINNEY 40-50, their mother. Angry, thwarted feminist with a questionable disability. Gets around her house with the aid of a liâ??l rascal scooter. Loud.

MARC HUNTER 35-40, a D-list director and recovering alcoholic and sex addict. Tells everyone heâ??s younger than he is.

JODY JOSHI 23, an undergrad film school dude. Capable, knows his stuff, but kind of a kiss-ass.

CHRISTI GARCIA 23-30, Assistant Director of the Holy Shepherd Justice League. Very put together, as if sheâ??s always ready to make a statement on camera. Not to be underestimated. This actor will also play other smaller roles, including attractive young women who are killed in various ways, a car hop, and a radio announcer.

Callbacks will include cold readings from the script.
