Shaken: Baritones Belting Bond at The Butterfly Club
October 10, 2017 @ 8:30 pm - October 15, 2017 @ 9:30 pm UTC+11
The Man. The Number. The License. His name is Bond, James Bond.
Perfect for newbies and know-it-alls alike, Shaken plunges head first into over 50 years of James Bond iconography. Pitting the seven ‘James Bond’ actors against each other in a race to determine, scientifically, which of them is the greatest all-time Bond.
Winner of the Ballarat Cabaret Award and nominated for Best Cabaret at Melbourne Fringe 2016, Shaken is packed with some of the greatest Bond themes, trivia, and anecdotes from the last 55 years. Including hits from Shirley Bassey, Tom Jones, Gladys Knight, and Tina Turner, Shaken is a wildly entertaining, and light hearted look at the man known simply as 007.
Written and directed by Green Room Award nominee and WA Academy of Performing Arts alumni Charlie D. Barkle. Shaken features Charlie alongside Melbourne’s Oliver Clark a multi-skilled and talented performer, well deserving of the title ‘Entertainer’.
Whether you’re a new convert to Bond movies through Craig or Brosnan, a fan of the kitschy Moore era, or a classic Connery devotee, Shaken is the show for you. Come and join Barkle and Clark as they stir up the audience, shake up their martinis, and belt Bond like you’ve never heard it before.
