Networks Theatre is back! Our next offering is a rare theatrical event in the region, KINDERTRANSPORT – THE CHILDREN’S TRAIN created by Nick Moore. This emotional drama is set in Europe in the 1930s. After the pogrom of November 9th, 1938 several European countries opened their borders for children and young people in what was called “Kindertransport”, the transport of children. As the Nazis increased their grip on Germany and Austria, Jewish families were given the chance to evacuate their children to the UK. Around 10,000 young people and children moved to England, while their parents, in many cases, weren’t able to leave. Many of these children never saw their families ever again. There is where our show begins.
With a talented cast of 16 actors the show tells the story of a very dark chapter in human history. This touching drama with songs tells the stories of some of these children. It is superbly acted and will not fail to move you. If you like a powerful night at the theatre, then you can book tickets through our website (click here for booking). That page shows times and prices. The shows are 30, 31 May and 1 June. For more information, call 96 674 02 51 any afternoon.
Kindertransport will be followed by our final show of the season. On 3rd June the Children’s Theatre Course will begin. This summer it’s the turn of The Bamboo Princess, written and directed by Nick Moore. The story is based on a Japanese folk tale in which a couple of elderly peasants find a baby girl inside a bamboo plant and decide to adopt it as if it were their daughter. But that girl is more than just an abandoned baby unbeknownst to them she’s a Moon Princess who will one day return home. The shows will be at the end of our school year on 20th and 21st of June.
