SHOW TIMES & BOOKINGS

Kindertransport: The Children’s Train

Our final public show on the 2018-2019 season is a revival of one of our most powerful dramas. Welcome to Kindertransport: The Children’s Train. This musical drama, last seen in 2011, moves its audience directly back to 1930s Europe, where, as the Nazi threat grew, groups of Jewish German, Polish and Czechoslovakian children, amongst others, were evacuated to safety. Many of these children were taken out by special trains that became known as the Kindertransport.

The Bamboo Princess
The Bamboo Princess, adapted from a Japanese Folk tale is a firm favourite at Networks Theatre. First presented in 2001 and again in 2014 it’s based on a popular Japanese story. This comic musical tells the Legend of the Bamboo Princess Kaguya- Hime, who is found in a forest of bamboo trees. The Woodcutter and his wife who secretly take in this baby are blissfully unaware that she will one day return to the Moon to be with her other family. This traditional story has important lessons which can be drawn, such as the need to be honest, the importance of valuing people while they are still with us and accepting that nothing is forever. Nick Moore’s version transforms the story into a musical, with great songs and choreographies, fundamental for our young learners, while also being a joy for the parents to watch.


100 Shows Book
At Networks Theatre we are very proud of this piece of work. It took us a long time to gather all the information and contact so many people to tell us their experiences in each show. A book, in short, that sets a milestone in our theatre company. You can buy it at any office of Networks English Studies priced at €12. If you can’t pop by and want to us to send you the book by ordinary mail all you have to do is pay via PayPal for the book plus postage and we will mail it to you.
