At Networks Theatre we can proudly say that we put on the best pantomime in the Costa Blanca. 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!
This year it’s the turn of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Last seen in 2014, and with a cast of twenty-five actors just bubbling with enthusiasm, this show is a treat. Come along and join the team as they bring you their 18th Annual Pantomime as ever written and directed by artistic director Nick Moore!
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?
On May 19 we celebrated our 100 shows and it couldn’t have been better. We held an exhibition, and we had musical numbers and speeches to commemorate our 100 productions! We were thrilled to see so many familiar faces again and sadly missed some people who couldn’t attend. But in the end we had a great time looking back across the years, reminiscing about the 100 shows we’ve produced and sharing a laugh or tear about so many wonderful memories with everybody.

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!
When it comes to the task of creating a movie, either a short or a long film, most of the advice you get is: put a script together, get yourself a structure, start outlining a budget… Though all of this is true, in fact you need two basic things only to set you off on a journey to filmmaking land: a camera and an idea.

For years we’ve been finding and using the wonderful source of talent we have amongst our students to present great entertainment! Show after show they have shown what they’ve got! But now the talent will be hunted in another way; the best singers, performers, musicians, comedians and much more are going to gather together at our San Agustín Theatre with a vast variety of performances. There’s even a magician in it!
We interview today Killing Hamlet’s director, ex Networks student and current Networks Theatre actor, Pedro Murcia. This play will be performed the last week of October, in the middle of Halloween week. A great show about spirits, demons, disloyalty and murder. But fair enough!
