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!

Our Christmas show this year is the welcome return of Nick Moore’s “Fairy Tale Mix”. Being the last children’s show of the year, this fun musical performed by our younger students is a celebration of fairy tales and live theatre all rolled into one. Fairy Tale Mix is the story of Jane, a spoilt child who throws a temper tantrum when she doesn’t get the Christmas present she wanted! The fairy tale book she’s given gets ripped into shreds and the pages all fly up into the air! But when they land something’s different…something’s changed…our beloved fairy tale characters are all in the wrong stories! It’s up to Jane to get them back where they belong and learn a very important lesson in life! If she doesn’t Christmas is cancelled! Letters will be handed out by Networks Teachers at the end of the month. Students from 5º, 6º of primary and 1º and 2º of ESO can participate. Do you want to be part of this stunning play?

Hello everybody! Here we post a little synopsis of Totem for the spanish friends out there. Shows are this week: Friday at 7pm and 9.30pm and Saturday at 8pm. Book your tickets now!:

Dean Farber

Dean Farber

Nueva Orleans, Louisiana. El tiempo es ahora. Y hasta el ahora todo parece muy normal, pero en el Teatro Farber pocas veces suceden las reglas de un mundo etiquetado como normal. En el escenario del teatro, llamado así por la familia centenaria que lo custodia, yacen las reliquias de un pasado lleno de estrenos y funciones en casi todas las lenguas que han pasado por el sur-este de Estados Unidos. Pero ahora, debido a una crisis de asistencia, cumple más el papel de almacén que de vehículo dramático. En él sólo quedan dos de los hermanos Farber: Harry, el mayor y administrador jefe, y Dean, el jovenzuelo y aparentemente más inexperto de la familia. Junto a ellos vive Emma, una chica nómada que hace las de conserje mientras aguarda el momento en el que retomar su camino.

Today we present the interview to Diego Ruiz, another young and talented Networks Theatre actor!

When I was me. Networks Theatre - Rehearsals May 2015

Diego Ruiz. When I was me. Networks Theatre – Rehearsals May 2015

 

WHAT IS WHEN I WAS ME? WHAT’S YOUR OPINION ABOUT IT?

When I Was Me is, in a nutshell, a show about young people who commit suicide. As one of the lines says at the beginning of the play, we don’t want to add anything to these tragic stories, just tell the truth behind them.

This is not the show that you are used to seeing at Networks. Death is the main character in these stories, but this is ultimately a tale about tolerance and self-acceptance. Although very different from other shows we present like the panto, I think everyone who comes to see it will feel a special connection with many of the main characters, and that’s what makes it a unique experience. It’s that kind of show.

WHAT ROLE DO YOU PLAY? HOW DO YOU SEE HIM?

As most of the actors in the show, I play several secondary characters (four, to be precise), two of which are relatives of the main characters. I play the part of Kevin’s Dad, the boy who suffers from anorexia, and Dan, the brother of the homosexual boy. Kevin’s Dad is the understanding dad you’d expect to find in a “happy American family,” and Dan is, basically, the little, innocent brother who doesn’t really know what’s going on around him.

We have started rehearsing our Christmas theatre course. Next week we’ll be performing “A Christmas Carol”, a traditional tale written by Charles Dickens adapted by our artistic director Nick Moore. This popular classic tells the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, a stubborn and selfish businessman who despises Christmas. One night he receives the visit of three ghosts that will accompany him, as he witnesses various Christmas scenes. These ghosts will give him the opportunity to look deep into his soul whilst he thinks about his life.
