Networks Theatre is back! Our next offering is a rare theatrical event in the region, KINDERTRANSPORT – THE CHILDREN’S TRAIN created by Nick Moore. This emotional drama is set in Europe in the 1930s. After the pogrom of November 9th, 1938 several European countries opened their borders for children and young people in what was called “Kindertransport”, the transport of children. As the Nazis increased their grip on Germany and Austria, Jewish families were given the chance to evacuate their children to the UK. Around 10,000 young people and children moved to England, while their parents, in many cases, weren’t able to leave. Many of these children never saw their families ever again. There is where our show begins.
With a talented cast of 16 actors the show tells the story of a very dark chapter in human history. This touching drama with songs tells the stories of some of these children. It is superbly acted and will not fail to move you. If you like a powerful night at the theatre, then you can book tickets through our website (click here for booking). That page shows times and prices. The shows are 30, 31 May and 1 June. For more information, call 96 674 02 51 any afternoon.
Kindertransport will be followed by our final show of the season. On 3rd June the Children’s Theatre Course will begin. This summer it’s the turn of The Bamboo Princess, written and directed by Nick Moore. The story is based on a Japanese folk tale in which a couple of elderly peasants find a baby girl inside a bamboo plant and decide to adopt it as if it were their daughter. But that girl is more than just an abandoned baby unbeknownst to them she’s a Moon Princess who will one day return home. The shows will be at the end of our school year on 20th and 21st of June.

“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. Recordad que la clave podéis encontrarla en la segunda carta que se os mandó con las entradas. Si no la conserváis, por favor contáctenos por email en firstname.lastname@example.org o llamando al 966740251.
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!
