The Hassanis. Directed by Stanley Pettigrew. Choreography Pat Armet. Costumes by Bushy Westfallen. Scenery by Terry Parsons. Lighting Michael Northen.  Musical Director Patrick McCann. 
Stanley Baxter was for me the King of Panto and always gave a 5 star performance. His pantos at the King's Theatre from the mid fifties to 1991 were legendary (generally a production was mounted in Edinburgh one year, repeated in Glasgow the year after (or vice versa) and latterly shared also with Sunderland Empire).
