JAMES – James is a 25- to 35-year old white collar worker. He is confident, curious, but bored with his day job, he moonlights as “Righteous Hoodie,” the unofficial leader of the “Adventure Patrol.” James is athletic under a softening exterior. He is possibly a minority, but all races will be considered.

SEAN – Sean is also 25-35. He works in corporate IT, but remembers fondly his days of being a DJ. Sean is the first and last to raise a pint. He is funny, occasionally angry and smart. He moonlights at “Friar Chuck,” a character that combines his love of the Renaissance period and his IT geeky tendencies. He might be balding and overweight, but all builds will be considered.

KATE – Kate is a kick-ass business chick. She runs daily and has a martial arts background. She more or less satisfied with her job and thinks about it often, even when on an “Adventure Patrol” mission. She is occasionally apprehensive about the danger the group seems to put themselves in. She moonlights as “Lady Lynx,” a cat woman variant.

Minor roles – Newscaster, Director

ZOMBIES – July 21 — 6 to 12 needed (no physicality required), July 26 — 6 to 12 needed (fight acting skills a bonus)
