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

Welcome to Networks Theatre where we’ve been presenting theatre in English since 1999. For 15 years we’ve brought pantomimes, comedies, musicals, poetry and plays to Orihuela. If you are discovering our work for the first time you’re in for a treat! If you’re already familiar with our shows, welcome back! Our season this year runs from October through to June and brings you 9 shows that illustrate the wide talent pool that we are tapping into from our local community. We look forward to welcoming you to the shows so come and make a night of it!
At Networks we’ve been using theatre as a teaching tool for several years. It wasn’t long ago when we decided to share this method with schools around the Alicante and Murcia area; in order to show how English can be taught through theatre. To help we created Adventures in English. To give you some more details, in 2013 our artistic director Nick Moore wrote our first project knowing that our black box theatre would be perfect for students to enjoy both a good performance and a high quality educational show. Many tings distinguish T.I.E. (Theatre in Education) from other theatre plays.
This year’s March musical is going to be a classic piece of Networks Theatre: Robin Hood and the Abba Silver Disc written by Nick Moore. You’ve probably heard of this story before. One hero and a journey through a series of unfortunate events, until he reaches his final goal: an Abba Silver Disc. Yes, you read it right, an Abba Silver Disc. But why Abba? Well, any person in the entire world can hum at least one of their songs, from Mamma Mia to S.O.S.
This show is so popular that it’s been presented three times! The first outing was written and performed in 2006 starring David Verdejo as Robin Hood, Diana Benito as Maid Marion and Pedro Murcia as Prince John. It was followed the next year with a sequel! So in 2011 with Fernando Verdejo as Robin Hood, Carmen García as Maid Marion and Yeray García as Prince John both shows were performed together as a double bill! That show was originally meant to be performed in our new theatre but the building wasn’t ready! So now finally after four years of waiting, it’s the time to finally fulfil the dream!
