Bringing the magic of pantomime
to Orihuela for 15 years!
Oh yes we do!
Dick Whittington 2013


Summer Camp

Full of hopes and dreams kids flock each summer to the Broadway Dream Summer Camp. It's a place to learn, a space to grow and a brilliant chance to discover musical theatre. The young actors dedicate their summer with enthusiasm and energy each hoping in their own way to grow as a performer and to gain new experiences. But this summer will be different for the first time returning students will tell it like it is. Being an actor is a hard profession with knocks and set-backs….should they let the young kids dream of Broadway? Or should they share with them the realities of what is a really hard profession, to be a performer on the Broadway stage?

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!
