Auditions for "Shakers" and "Bouncers"

WHAT: Auditions for "Shakers" and "Bouncers", directed by Joan Nordlund and Beth Morton
WHEN: Saturday 3rd September, 12pm to 6pm
WHERE: FINNBRIT, Fredrikinkatu 20 A, Helsinki (MAP)

Our autumn production will double bill John Godber & Jane Thorton's "Shakers" and John Godber's "Bouncers".

Both plays adopt the same style of 4 actors playing multiple characters within each play, 4 females in "Shakers" and 4 males in "Bouncers".

"Bouncers" centres around the nightlife that befalls the four male doormen while they are at work, while "Shakers" follows the trials and tribulations of four cocktail waitresses doing their best to keep the punters happy. The themes of the plays are universal and light hearted, giving the audience a visual comedy experience as the actors in both become the partygoers, louts and drunks within the plot.

The roles are all of equal size and require the actors to be versatile and quite physical in their playing. The fun, party atmosphere of the plays' content will offer the actors an enjoyable challenge as they snap in and out of their other personas.

Rehearsal times will be as follows:

Thursday evenings- 7pm – 10pm
Saturday afternoons- 12pm – 6pm
Sunday afternoons – 12pm – 6pm

We will be rehearsing the plays separately to begin with, and will require each cast a maximum of TWICE a week. We will draw up detailed rehearsal schedules early in September.

First read through on Sunday 4th September (2pm – 5pm) OR Thursday 8th September (7pm – 10pm) TBC at a later date

In view of the tight time schedule, it would helpful if you could let us know if you are intending to audition for a role (via Facebook or by email to either This email address is being protected from spambots.

This does not commit you to anything, and it is not a requirement.
