Theatre on your doorstep
Bringing high quality, professional, accessible and entertaining plays to small communities throughout Wales, England and Scotland.
Hijinx is an award-winning theatre company, who tours performances to communities across the country, combining music, drama and visual imagery in vibrant new productions. Each Spring, Hijinx tour a play for learning disabled and community audiences, and each Autumn a play for the general public in community venues and small arts centres.
Hijinx runs Odyssey Theatre, an inclusive community participation project which gives people, of all abilities the opportunity to develop drama skills in weekly workshops. Each Christmas the group performs at Wales Millennium Centre supported by a professional production team. An off-shoot of the main performance group are the Odyssey Pods, smaller more portable groups who work on short pieces for festivals and conferences. Odyssey was runner-up in the 2009 National Lottery Awards - Best Arts Project in the UK.
Hijinx runs a full Outreach department providing workshop opportunities and training for many difference groups and forum theatre for conferences.
In 2008 Hijinx ran the first Unity Festival, an inclusive arts festival - the first of it’s kind in Wales. This has become an annual event in which we work in partnership with Wales Millennium Centre and MENCAP Cymru, with contributions from other residents and local organisations.
