Panto! (ITV-1 2012, Sheridan Smith, John Bishop)

Published

on

Jonathan Harvey and John Bishop pull out all the stops in this classic farce style tale of backstage shenanigans at a provincial Panto production. It’s the day of the pantomime’s opening and a full dress rehearsal is needed before the opening performance.

Producer Di though has her hands full leaving director Francis with the job of making sure that tantrums don’t get out of hand and that romantic entanglements don’t threaten the show.

Panto is fabulously cast and played and watch out for musician Chesney Hawkes playing himself as a somewhat accident prone good guy who wants to prove that he isn’t a one hit wonder!
