Description of Event: Urgent casting call for an amateur production of:
Shakers – an ensemble piece, with each actor playing equally featured roles.
Performance dates: 13-17 February 2018
Performance and Rehearsals in The Nomad Theatre, East Horsley, Surrey KT24 6RT on Sunday / Wednesday / Friday to suit.
The playing age is 20s to 30s, but rapport between the actors is as important.
* Adele is a single Mum, aching for a better life, but needs to make ends meet. She and Mel do not see eye to eye.
* Carol is a graduate with aspirations which haven’t panned out – yet!
* Mel is possibly a little older, worked in a pub before Shakers, quite likes working in a cocktail bar, and could be a little larger than average. Mel also plays a Scottish chef during the play.
* Nicky – maybe a bit of peacemaker amongst the girls, she has aspirations to be a performer.
Shakers explores the social, emotional and prejudicial interactions between women, their girlfriends, their coworkers, and men. It is a wry and often wickedly funny play for four actors who step in and out of their core characters (cocktail waitresses with problems of their own), to show us their typical clientele – excited girls out to party, business men behaving badly, and lads and lasses on the pull. Shakers is an explosion of wit, imagination, and scintillating pace, and is a skilfully observed and often very funny commentary on nightlife in the UK.
Amateur, but not amateur-ish, The Nomads pride ourselves on producing high quality productions.
