Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a stunner of a tree, the old favourite carols and a room full of family and friends. But, as all fans of Hijinx Theatre know, the icing on the cake is always a vibrant Christmas show by Hijinx Odyssey, who this November bring The Spirit of Christmas (plus trees, carols and friends) to Wales Millennium Centre!
Perfect for all ages, The Spirit of Christmas celebrates family, friendship and shared histories. This musical festive treat centres around Megan who is on a mission to find out about her grandmother, a glamorous performer whom the family never talk about, who emigrated from Cardiff 60 years ago. Armed with a photograph and an invitation to a party Megan finally has the chance to learn more about the woman she is told she resembles both in looks and talent. As her relatives bring out old photographs, stories come to life helping Megan to piece together her long lost history.
The show brings together the infectious energy of Odyssey, with the enthusiasm of pupils from Woodlands High School and talented music students at University of South Wales, Caerleon, and has been generously supported by Legal & General.
The Spirit of Christmas is at the Weston Studio, Wales Millennium Centre on 27th & 28th November at 7pm, and 29th November at 3pm & 7pm. Tickets are £8 – £12 and available to book in person from the Wales Millennium Centre ticket office, over the telephone on 029 20 636464, or you can book online online.
