As you know, during last May we celebrated 100 shows and to commemorate it we published a book that contains everything about Networks Theatre. It has two introductions from Nick and Lee explaining the origins of the theatre, and it has a show page for each and every production from the first in March 1999 through to show number 100 in June 2018. When was your first show?
On May 19 we celebrated our 100 shows and it couldn’t have been better. We held an exhibition, and we had musical numbers and speeches to commemorate our 100 productions! We were thrilled to see so many familiar faces again and sadly missed some people who couldn’t attend. But in the end we had a great time looking back across the years, reminiscing about the 100 shows we’ve produced and sharing a laugh or tear about so many wonderful memories with everybody.

Summer Camp has started its rehearsals. With a cast of more than 20 actors, this new musical written and directed by Nick Moore is coming on stage at the end of March. The dates can be checked out on our website or by clicking on the banner above. Summer Camp is the story of young actors that dedicate their summer with enthusiasm and energy each hoping in their own way to grow as a performer and to gain new experiences.
If you asked people what a pantomime was, many of them would define it as something related to farce. This is partly true, since the origin of the theatrical term derives from the way the actors in this kind of theatre interpret their roles. From the dame, the baddie and all the way up to the usual eponymous hero, from the bad jokes to the tear-jerking ending, pantomime is a typical theatrical English genre put on stage in the run up to Christmas. Oh yes it is!
Don’t worry. Be flappy! Ugly is back at Networks Theatre after 6 years! This musical for all the family is based on Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Ugly Duckling” and is packed with great songs and hilarious comedy. Written and directed by Nick Moore the show has a cast of over 20 people and marvellous design and costumes by Dennis Carpenter. So you’re in for a treat! Come and meet Chick Number 9, also known as Ugly, her caring mother, her useless father Drake and the lovely chicks. But watch out for the cats who’ll eat you quicker than you say “DuckMonalds.” Shows are in June on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd at various times. You can book your tickets now on our website. Be as Quack as you can!
