Puss in Boots - The Pantomime!

The Networks Pantomime written and directed by Nick Moore with costumes and design by Dennis Carpenter is stuff of local legend! This year it's Networks Theatre's 16th annual Pantomime and a TOTALLY BRAND NEW TITLE AND PRODUCTION....Puss in Boots!   PUBLIC BOOKING NOW OPEN   Join us for a fabulous show full of comedy, song and entertainment. Our experienced professional all rounder Nick Moore will pLay the hilarious Dame Cornelia Corngrind, accompanied by Dennis Carpenter as King Begstha Question and panto favourite Pilar Ferrández returns as Queen Alaska Question. We also welcome back Juanto Ferrández who was so memorable as Buttons in last year's Cinderella who will play her hapless son Colin.   So what's Puss in Boots all about? Well don't get it confused with Dick Whittington, it's a different story, even though they both have a cat!   Colin's father the Miller has just died but poor unlucky Colin didn't inherit the mill...nor the donkey....he got Tommy the Cat! Disappointed as he is, he doesn't know that Tommy is under the wing of Fairy Tickle and by the end of the tail...sorry, tale... Colin will marry the beautiful Princess Paloma and conquer the local tax grabbing Ogre! BUt on the way it's great songs, brilliant choreography by Ines Ruiz. Come and join us for the best panto on the Costa Blanca! Check out our website archive for video and photos of previous shows. PUBLIC BOOKING NOW OPEN
