Need Actors for Table Reading Sept. 24 (Vancouver)

I've finished the first draft of my horror script (monster in the house type of script, except with vampires) and I would like to do a table reading in order to see what needs to be fixed. I'm looking for actors or people who are very good at doing cold readings or people who are good at reading stuff out loud.

I plan to do an entire read through and then do some comment/critique so I can get all of your opinions on what feels real, what doesn't, what needs work, etc. I can't pay you, but I will offer yummy snacks and beverages to whet your whistle.

The reading and commentary will take place Saturday, Sept. 24 from 2-8pm. I live in Portland, but reading will take place in Vancouver.

Character parts:

MIKE: Cop, husband to Kim and father of Stacy. (have someone to read for this already)

KIM: Frazzled mom of Stacy--Mike and Kim are married.

EVAN: Cop. Mike's partner. (may have someone to read for this)

STACY: Mike and Kim's bratty 15 y.o. daughter

RUBY: Stacy's super-smart geeky 10 y.o. little cousin

EMILY: Stacy's psuedo-goth friend, also 15

JENNY: Stacy's "good girl" friend, also 15

VAMPIRE: Dude who turns Kim into a fanged menace.

MYSTERY MENTOR: (haven't figured out a name for him yet) vampire hunter guy who helps in the battle with the vamps.

NARRATOR: Someone to read the action/settings. I will likely read this, if we don't have enough folks.

For the teens, I would like at least a couple of actual real live (as opposed to undead) teenagers (or as close to being teen as possible) to read the parts to make sure my dialogue and situations are as natural as possible. Being an old fogey myself, I might not have their characterizations right.

The rest of the people reading can be adults. As I mentioned before, readers don't have to be actual actors, but I do want people who can read out loud well--those of you who are good at reading books to kids would probably do just fine.

Please email me your resume (if you have one) or some links where I can see you in action. If you've never done this before, no worries. Just email me your contact info and I'll call you. Again, this is a non-paying gig. You'll get fed and you'll get my undying gratitude. (he he he he!)
