The Play

‘Shakers’ is a funny observational play set in a trendy 1980’s cocktail bar.  It has four female characters who take on the roles of the cocktail waitresses as well as the range of clientele who frequent the bar from the check-out girls to the chinless wonders, from the yuppies to the local lads.  We are given a wickedly funny glimpse of this world by the four long-suffering waitresses, offering a fascinating view of the reality that lurks behind the plastic palms and Pina Coladas.

In the play a lot of different issues are tackled and each individual character has their own story to tell.  This is a fantastic opportunity for experienced female actresses who want to take on a challenging, exciting role.

Characterisation and comedy timing are needed to play these parts

The Director

Having been a long standing member of CADOS,  I am very excited and passionate about this play as this was the first ever play I acted in (many moons ago!) so has a bit of a soft spot with me, and I know with the right cast and commitment this will be a fantastic production.
