The Silent Toy Soldier 2015

 Have a look at our gallery of images from the show.

In a land that should be full of magic and festive cheer, where joy and song should fill the air, something dark is stirring at the edges. As the threat draws closer, toys have been disappearing. How can you feel safe when you don't have a voice? 

Join Hijinx’s community theatre group, Odyssey, this Christmas as they share their own adaptation of E. T. A. Hoffmann’s The Nutcracker and the Mouse King. The Silent Toy Soldier features a vibrant cast of disabled and non-disabled performers from Odyssey, pupils from Woodlands High School, and aspects of Tchaikovsky’s music reimagined by students from the University of South Wales, Caerleon.

This treat for the whole family follows the Nutcracker, the Sugar Plum Fairy and other famous festive characters as they journey to find a place that everyone can call home.
