Second Star to the Right 2017

View the images from the dress rehearsal

Dreams aren’t what they used to be in Neverland. With Peter Pan gone, who can save Imagination, Adventure and the Second Star to the Right?

This Christmas join Odyssey, Hijinx’s community theatre group, as they restore hope to Neverland in a sparkling new production written by Llinos Mai. The Second Star to the Right features a vibrant cast of disabled and non-disabled performers from Odyssey, pupils from Woodlands High School and haunting, original music.

Reviews:

'See what stands Hijinx apart from other types of Christmas shows is that Hijinx always manage to leave a lasting impression to really make you think and stay with you; The Second Star to the Right was again no exception.'
Arts Scene in Wales

'Congratulations to the cast and creative production team for an astonishing show. Llinos Mai for writing such a breathtaking show. Lastly, thank you for taking myself and the audience to Neverland, a place of playing, hope and adventure.'
Quench, 5 stars
