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.

“hilariously punchy sketchy comedy” – The Plus Ones

Written and directed by Green Room Award nominee and WA Academy of Performing Arts alumni Charlie D. Barkle. Shaken features Charlie alongside Perth’s own Erin Jay Hutchinson an accomplished and award winning singer and actor best known for her role in the 2014 FRINGE WORLD award winning production “Point & Shoot”.

“exquisitely crafted and superbly delivered” – Weekend Notes
