In a small town suffering from the news of its first ever serial slasher, local high school athletic director Lance Dawson decides to get his down on his lucky buddy Paul Blake a job coaching girls basketball. But when the fact that Paul’s never coached, let alone played, basketball could cost both of them their jobs, they seek out Daniel Buckworth, the town’s local psychic, for help. Buckworth’s plan to summon spirits to help the girls win games fails when instead of just communicating with them, they accidentally awaken them in the form of zombies. Main Street has seen its better days as it gets ready for a three way battle royal between the slasher, zombies, and a group of friends who may be this small town’s only hope for survival.

Monsters Of Main Street can be best described as Shaun of the Dead meets Friday the 13th.

Available Roles:

There are a large number of available roles being considered at this audition. Principal, Supporting, and Lead roles will be considered as well as general “extra” and featured extra positions. The film’s storyline takes place in present day set inside typical small town suburban America. As such, there are casting opportunities available for all ranges of age and ethnicities.

  • LANCE DAWSON: (MALE) Late 20’s to Early 30’s – Caucasian – Athletic Appearance, Attractive – Athletic Director Lance Dawson is a former High School sports star and town hero that never grew up nor left his home town. He hangs out with the same best friends now as he did in high school and doesn’t want to move on. Dawson thinks of himself a bit of a playboy but he may be more “Simon Peg” than Sean Connery. Eventually all of his not so hidden character flaws helps lead to a situation no one in town is ready for.
  • ANDRE NEIDERMEN: (MALE) Mid 20’s to Mid 30’s – African American – NOT athletic – The equivalent of a Screech Powers or Steve Urkel when it comes to his athletic fortitude. Neidermen is definitely the brains of the bunch but a long time friendship with Lance and Paul has eliminated most of his self esteem issues. {Note: Neidermen’s lack of athletic ability MUST be apparent in his looks.}
  • CHLOE: (FEMALE) Mid 20’s to Late 30’s – Open Ethnicity – The very reason the song “Hot for the Teacher” was written. Chloe is equally sexy as she is tomboyish and enjoys trying to be just one of the guys even when her looks doesn’t always allow her to be just a friend. Her looks garner the interest of more than one guy, including both Lance and Paul.
  • THE SLASHER: (Male) – Open Age range and Ethnicity – Ever dreamed of being Jason Voorhies or Michael Myers? In the intimidating fashion of classic horror icons, this slasher is a large, imposing figure that will get his hands dirty just as quick as he’ll pick up a blade. We’re looking for a large figure who is very physically expressive. This isn’t about just being big, this is about being menacing, eerie, and evil.
  • SARAH JO: (FEMALE) Late Teens to early 20’s – Open Ethnicity – A team captain with a bad attitude that would rather fight than lead or play. Her rough and abrasive attitude may be a front, then again she may just indeed be a brat. – (in shape)
  • BECKY GREENS: (FEMALE) Late Teens to early 20’s – Open Ethnicity – A cross between your typical stoner guy in a woman’s body while having a superior sex drive to any of them. She grew up without her dad and her attraction to older men is an obvious result. But don’t let being on the younger side fool you, she’s aggressive well beyond her years and far more edgy.
  • DARCY TARGET: (FEMALE) Late Teens to early 20’s – Open Ethnicity – Perhaps not as dumb as the usual big boobed blond in every scary movie, but just as plastic and Barbie looking. Being materialistic and relentless on her looks are character traits she’s proud of. She’s stuck on a sports team not by her choice and her effort, or lack of it, is evident.
  • AWAY TEAM GIRL: (FEMALE) Late teens to early 20’s – African American – big mouthed, big boned, and big talking, a basketball playing girl on a rival team that likes to shove people around.
  • AWAY TEAM COACH: (MALE OR FEMALE) – Open Age Range – African American – A successful basketball coach that likes to play the race card.
  • OLDER MAN: (MALE) – Late 50’s and Above – Caucasian – he still thinks with his boy hood brain and treats women without much respect. His rough nature doesn’t seem to stop him from being liked though. Somehow he always seems to find himself at the right place and time.
  • FEMALE CASHIER: (FEMALE) – late teens to 30’s – Open Ethnicity – A convenience store clerk who is use to dealing with offensive guys in an often playful but at times protected manner. (Must have good emotional range)
  • WOMAN 1: (Female) – 20’s to late 30’s – Open Ethnicity – a girlfriend with a wandering eye that gets her into trouble. But she always knows how to convince her boyfriend to forgive her, even if it means a trip to a dirty bathroom stall.
  • GUY 1: (Male) – 20’s to 30’s – Open Ethnicity – One of a group of guys who gets irritated with Lance’s playboy ways.
  • GUY 2: (Male) – 20’s to 30’s – Open Ethnicity – Another guy who gets angry with Lance but equally angry at his girlfriend and her interest in Lance.
  • WOMEN BASKETBALL PLAYERS: late teens to early 20’s – We need a fair amount of women to portray a HS Varsity girls basketball team.
  • BAR PATRONS: Open Age Range – We need a diverse group of bar goers. Some of these may be more than just featured extras and could include minimal dialog.
  • ZOMBIES: Not just extras, some of these zombies have extensive on screen time and will be credited as such. You have to have a solid “Zombie” feel and be able to demonstrate the classic zombie movements.


Pay is negotiable and based on experience.
