Pantomime special: Sharon D Clarke, Susie McKenna and Lyn Gardner plus find out how to be a panto dame
In our sparkly pantomime special, Doctor Who star Sharon D Clarke and her wife, panto expert Susie McKenna, 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 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.
The Stage Podcast, hosted by Tim Bano, is presented in association with Charcoalblue
