Treasure Island, by Robert Louis Stevenson, is probably the best known pirate story in the world. It’s common to think of it as the definitive pirate tale: “Fifteen men on a dead man’s chest”, maps, exotic places, parrots, hidden treasures and all the well-known swash-buckling stereotypes about pirates.
This month Networks Theatre, at the hand of Nick Moore, who once again adapts and directs, brings to the stage a musical comedy full of surprises and abundant talent: It’s time for Treasure Island!
“Ready, we’re ready…” Can you carry on? As obvious as it sounds, music is the food of the soul, it’s the protagonist of the most special moments we have in our memories.
In Networks Theatre, it wasn’t going to be anything less, we know so much about this importance. Since 1999, back in the day when using cassette tapes was normal, the theatre group of Networks English Studies has been a constant meeting point for music in all of its formats: from musicals that span the ages, to soundtracks and contemporary music. As we approach our 20th anniversary, the technology used to reproduce the music has changed but the essential element of music is still very much the same.
Many people, perhaps you the reader, have absorbed the songs, their lyrics, their beats and melodies until these became part of your own personal history
Who would have imagined it 20 years ago? Many people, perhaps you the reader, have absorbed the songs, their lyrics, their beats and melodies until these became part of your own personal history. That’s the way the love for music is born, especially the love for music in theatre at the hand of Nick Moore, our founder and artistic director.
Networks Theatre is more alive than ever. Since last November we’ve already staged two shows and a Christmas Concert! Our pantomime Dick Whittington was a big success and our Children’s Theatre Course Peter Pan, which were both written and directed by Nick Moore. But wait! There’s more: this year comes packed with surprises, so keep what’s coming next?
¡Por fin ha llegado! A continuación os dejamos los enlaces para descargar Peter Pan, tanto el vídeo de la actuación como el paquete de fotos.

Now it’s the time for the younger students with the show Peter Pan. For three weeks, three groups will rehearse the same show and put it on our black-box stage in Calle San Agustín. The theatre course is a great learning experience in English as well as an entertaining activity in which all students improve their skills through the songs, the text and the choreographies. In the end, it’s not just about having a role, but about being responsible for everything going well and for the experience to be unique. Congratulations to the all the participants!

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?
