The latest theatre, dance and performance news

To Have and To Hold     

To Have and To Hold As part of the production for their forthcoming show, To Have and To Hold, Hijinx Theatre staged a fake wedding at All Saints Church, Llandaff North, Cardiff with the reception at Sbectrwm Community Centre, Fairwater, Cardiff.

Friends and family of the company and cast gathered today to participate in the filming of the wedding. Clips from this film will be shown at the start of the play, and during the performance.

At All Saints Church everyone gathered to see the couple come out of church, and much fun was had by all throwing confetti! ‘Parents’ of the bride, Mr and Mrs Shires were very proud.

Then at the Sbectrwm reception, following the toasts and speeches, Phil and Rachel’s first dance as a ‘married couple’ was the timeless classic of Cindi Lauper’s Time After Time.

Opening in Newport at the Gateway Centre, on 21st April, the 11 week tour of To Have and To Hold will visit many day centres, theatres and clubs across Wales and England.

To Have and To Hold is a wonderful heart-warming play about relationships, friendships and falling in love!

On the surface it seemed straightforward enough, the chance for a simple love story – but imagine how difficult it is to make a friend, never mind fall in love if you are a dependent person.

Telling the story through movement, music and text, To Have and To Hold looks at the trials and tribulations, joys and jubilations of brother Phil, and his dependent sister Rhiannon… when he gets married to Rachael and she meets a very special friend Darren, at her local College. This is Hijinx Theatre’s spring show for adults with learning disabilities and their communities.

The Wedding Day was a very enjoyable event for everyone involved. Thanks go to Dragons and Daffodils Cakes for donating the wedding cake. Catering was by Gegin Fach (Sbectrwm café), and the beautiful flowers were arranged by the Sbectrwm gardeners. Photographs by Brian Tarr and Ian Hill, video by George Auchterlonie.
