Special Recognition at the Theatre Critics of Wales Awards

Saturday 25th January 2014 saw the second annual Theatre Critics of Wales Awards and a very special night for Hijinx Theatre. Gaynor Lougher and Richard Berry went along to the ceremony at Sherman Cymru thinking that they were in attendance to jointly present the award for Best Ensemble, which they were happy to award to Gagglebabble for The Bloody Ballad. Little did they know that there was a surprise in store for them as for the final award of the night they were invited on stage by Michael Kelligan to accept the Special Recognition Award as the founders on Hijinx Theatre. Gareth Clark, who has toured in three productions with Hijinx Theatre as well as attending the Hijinx Academy and being a long standing member of Odyssey, joined Michael in presenting this much deserved award and led the audience in a heart-felt three cheers for Gaynor and Richard.

A group of our Academy students were able to join Gaynor and Richard in their celebrations as they had been jointly nominated in the Large Scale Dance Production category along with GDance and Ballet Cymru for Stuck in the Mud. Although we didn’t win, it was lovely to see Ballet Cymru take the award for their production of Romeo a Juliet, and as one of our students said, “We won the experience.”

Also enjoying success at the Theatre Critics of Wales Awards were Native HQ, who are currently working with us on our social media. They were awarded Best Digital/Online Content for their work on Theatr Genedleathol Cymru’s Pridd.
