A Lad in the Wild West
20th - 22nd January 2022
Director — Hannah Guile
Having been involved with Hurst Panto for the last 9 years, Hannah decided that this year being on stage wasn't enough and so has alsotaken on the role of director. Although directing herself has sometimes proved challenging, Hannah received tremendous support from her team of Producers and wouldn't have been able to do it without them! Hannah never thought her gap year would entail directing the back end of a horse or teaching 20 kids the cup song, but nevertheless she has enjoyed every minute of this experience and is looking forward to her future in the musical theatre industry.
Assistant Director & Co-producer — Claire Lawrence
After two years atthe helm, Claire is moving to assisting the director this time. This is her seventh show as producer, this year working with co-producers Becky Vaughan and Sue Payne to get this sgow out of the minds of our amazing writing team and into reality. She is very thankful to everyone who has helped in any way. It really does take the whole village to get this show on the road.
Musical Director — Donald Stewart
Having dug out some of his country music collection during lockdown, Donald was an early enthusiast of doing Aladdin in the Wild West. Never known to miss the opportunity to holler "Yee-Haa" at the top ofhis voice to the embarassment of those around him, Donald is grateful to Matt and Joe for creating an opportunity to dust down his cowboy boots, put on his bootlace tie, reacquiant himself with the pleasures of rhinestones and have the band produce some authentic country vibes.
Choreographer — Corey Abery
This is Corey's first ever association with the Hurst Pantomime Group, and he's extremely happy to be helping out with choreography. Corey has been part of the local am-dram scene for around 7 or 8 years and has participated in Reading pantos with Justin Fletcher for 3 consecutive years. He believes it to be really special how the community comes together to produce this event, and he hopes you enjoy the show...

She has been the stage manager for the past 2 pantomimes and is looking forward to being a part of another outstanding village production.
