PROJECT SUMMARY

THE MORTUARY COLLECTION is a gothic horror fantasy anthology. We’re casting a haunted house intro and a vignette set at a Halloween party.

Storyline:

On the run from the police, a misguided young girl takes refuge in a decrepit old mortuary. There she meets MONTGOMERY DARK, an eccentric mortician with more than a few skeletons in his closet.

Montgomery chronicles the strange history of the town through a series of twisted tales, each more terrifying than the last, but the young girl’s world is unhinged when she discovers that the final story — is her own…

 

WHO WE ARE

simon max hill casting is a Portland-local casting company best known for casting all 8 seasons of Portlandia and a slew of critically acclaimed movies, including “Wendy & Lucy”, “Green Room” and the Sundance Grand Jury Prize Award Winning “I Don’t Feel At Home In This World, Anymore”.

 

WHO WE’RE LOOKING FOR

We’re casting kids for the roles of Bill, Jen & Katie. Bill should look approximately 8/9 years old. Jen and Katie should look 11-13, but on the “still a kid” side of adolescence. We’re casting an adult woman, somewhere in her 20’s-30’s for the role of Christine.

All roles require a fair amount of acting, we recommend that only confident actors apply. Characger descriptions and audition scenes are below for your review.

Bill: male, looks about 9 y/o. Thoughtful, a good listener, brave in the face of a giant scary man.
Katie: female, looks about 12 y/o. Going through a cocky phase. Finds herself acting a lot more confident than she feels, but other kids listen, so maybe that’s the way to go?  
Jen: female, looks about 11 y/o. Shy, but emboldened by her friend Katie’s bravado.
Christine: female, looks 20’s to 30’s. Christine is at a terrible Halloween house party, and has abandoned any notion of socializing in favor of treasure hunting through the host’s bedroom and master bathroom.
