hinged theatre


We are an exciting company that makes theatre to unlock the imagination; using technical artistry, circus and design to engage and involve a family audience.

Sky In The Pie; our second show has received funding from the Arts Council for an R and D period hooray hooray. See the pictures from the start of R and D on the gallery page, and here are some Duck feet for a potential puppet for the new show.

Jacky Crosher and Nix Barnaville formed Hinged Theatre in 2011, with a shared passion to make highly interactive children’s shows that have theatrical quality at their heart.
Hinged Theatre creates innovative shows for a family audience, in outdoor and unusual settings; we also lead workshops in theatre, circus and storytelling for young and old.

The Pie In The Sky

Huw.. I’m getting some artwork that represents the show from the set and propmaker to give a flavour for the show rather than a rehearsal picture which looks unprofessional.

Have to write the words for the Sky in the Pie page too.


Vasalisa and the Peacock

Vasalisa and the Peacock is Hinged Theatre’s first show
It has been received with great enthusiasm from the audience, bookers and critics alike.
It is a highly participative production that contains circus skills, physical theatre and live original music. The action packed story centres around our plucky heroine, Vasalisa, who is on a quest. On the way she meets a maudlin peacock, a comedy cauldron and the terrifying Baba Yaga.
