Yee Hah! The Wild West came into Crickhowell and warmed up a cold wet January with a
Front of House giving a great welcome, costumed in checked shirts and Stetsons!

Even hot dogs on sale to add to the fun, a great idea.This dedicated team brought us a pantomime
full of fun and laughter with a very good clear voiced narrator from Bill Chase to set the scene for us.
Our favourite Dame, Rob Jones as Shirley, once again every inch the star of the show in his
magnificent star spangled waistcoat, with Will, Russell Walker and Bud, Mike Davies making a very
good duo supporting the action.

The surprise of the evening came from Sian Fielding as the mysterious El Loco an unbelievably
hilarious performance which was so skilful, well done ..outstanding. Tony D’Anna as Sheriff Trott
gave a strong performance, as always brilliant timing, and with Cara Perkins as a charming Alice
Trott. Well choreographed in the lively Arizona style, the dancers really enjoying their whip crack
away routines, and all the cast kept up with their American accents! Excellent costumes from Sue
Keylock and Sue Collins,who produced the very creative ideas and stylish lighting from Lesley
Alexander-Carter.Swift and silent Backstage from S.M. Bob Spiers and crew.

Well done to your Production team and to you all. I know how hard you work to make this
pantomime a success, so thank you for your kind hospitality(Alun Sussex)and every success for your
next pantomime, it is always full of surprises!
