35 year old curvy black woman. Over 5’4” but mousy and unnoticed. She’s lived her life of rejection in the dating world. She had a humungous crush on Brad in College but he rejected her like all the rest. She has since gotten over it and moved on and has grown to learn what she likes and where she fits in – the world of Horror and Horror Conventions. At The Scarefest, under all the scary makeup, Janet discovers she is the hottest girl in the room. Life is better here at Scarefest far away from Brad. She can have any man she wants; why would she bother with that loser Brad.
We are looking for a theater trained actress that looks like a younger Oprah Winfrey about 25 years old with some curves.
30 year old, short, white, jock asshole. Always Mr. popular in High School and College, but now that they glory days are over he has grown a little desperate for dates and has remembered Janet’s previous crush on him. After being rejected by her he figures she is just playing hard to get and tries harder. He stalks her and follows her to The Scarefest. He surprises her by renting out the honeymoon suite. He gets rejected for a monster at the convention. He watches the monster kill someone and then tries to imitate this to gain Janet’s affections. Only he fails at killing and is embarrassed in front of everyone.
A short white man about 30 and past his jock glory days. We cannot stress short enough. You must be shorter than our leading lady. Short haircut, Baseball cap etc…
