The Stage Podcast: Panto special with Sharon D Clarke, Susie McKenna and Lyn Gardner

In our sparkly pantomime special, Doctor Who star Sharon D Clarke [1] and her wife, panto expert Susie McKenna [2], discuss their enduring love for the art form and recall how they first met on a show at the Hackney Empire 20 years ago.

Lyn Gardner [3] and Tim Bano try to convince Christmas grinch Rosemary Waugh to embrace her inner Buttons.

Plus, after a failed bid to run off and join the circus, Fergus Morgan tries his hand at becoming a pantomime dame, with some (very patient) help from the Lyric Hammersmith’s Carl Mullaney [4].

The Stage Podcast, hosted by Tim Bano, is presented in association with Charcoalblue [5] and is available on, iTunes [6]Spotify [7] and Podbean [8].

The next episode of The Stage podcast will be available in January.
