About the show
This is a depiction of a nightclub through the evening as told by 4 bouncers, each with a  different take on the nightlife world. This will have a twist as it will not be set “up north” but daaaaaaawn south, so bring your best east end accents with you. Our January 2018 production of Shakers (the female partner production) was set in the ’80’s, so we’ll be choosing a different decade for this one.
Characters
Can you dance, can you rap, can you have a laugh and make sure that the life of one of the following bouncers can become your own for 4 nights only….? Read on:
Eric – Recently separated from his wife. Can be older than the other bouncers. Gives the impression that he is a deeper, more thoughtful character than some of the others. His monologues show his distaste as the objectification of women within the nightlife.
Also plays Baz ( Group fo lads) and Maureen ( Group of ladies) and a Buxom Swede.
Les – Eager to get into fights. Hot-headed and temper runs high.
Also plays Kev ( Group of lads), Rosie( Group of girls).
Judd – Wheeler and dealer sort of chap. Involved in petty theft. Judd knows Eric from gym and training and tries to pick a fight with him regularly in the show.

The famous tale of Ebenezer Scrooge’s journey from miserable miser to generous benefactor, has been a popular feature of Christmas since it was published in 1843. Scrooge’s redemption is prompted by the visitation of a succession of spirits. By turns exciting, terrifying, amusing and always moving; this story is a wonderful prelude to Christmas.

At the summer meeting of the local am dram society, next season’s play is to be announced. The society’s business manager, Nick, runs into trouble, having promised a different show and the plum roles to four different people.

In this comedic look at the world of ‘am-dram’, the audience may find the scenarios of hidden agendas, scores to be settled and all the behind-the-scenes shenanigans which go into a production, a little familiar.

All in all, this play will make you chuckle and chortle, perhaps even raise the odd wry eyebrow or groan! Now, does anyone know how to light a barbecue properly?

A comedic look at the world of amateur dramatics!
