The Pantomime 'Dick Whittington' has been in rehearsals at the Grand Theatre Lancaster for a number of weeks and tonight is the first night. A full dress rehearsal has been called before curtain up and tensions are beginning to show. Producer DI (Sam Spiro) is keen for the show to be a success - it's a tough time in regional theatre and by taking the part of the fairy she is anxious to realise her lofty ambitions. Director Francis (Mark Benton) tries valiantly to pull the show to order in spite of DI's constant interfering. Lewis Loud (John Bishop) Morecambe FM's cheeky DJ has his stage debut in the part of Jack the Lad. During rehearsals romance has blossomed between him and Tamsin (Sheridan Smith) who is principal boy Dick. Tamsin is a celebrity - recently appearing as Mad Mindy the Axe murderer from the Nation's favourite soap. Lewis is genuinely fond of Tamsin and realises his own career path may take an upward turn if their relationship continues. So when Lewis's son Paul (Daniel Bishop) is unexpectedly delivered to the stage door by ex-wife Gina (Kaye Wragg) Lewis realises that he must take his fatherly duties seriously. Not easy when you're surrounded by a faded theatrical actor Johnny Darby (Michael Cochrane) playing the part of Dolly the Cook Chantelle (Ami Metcalf) the nervous mis-cast love interest of Dick and Alderman Fitzwarren (Chesney Hawkes) accident-prone good guy trying hard to show that he has more to his musical repertoire than 'The One and Only'.

Comic John Bishop stars in this made-for-TV comedy following the offstage politics of a pantomime. Morecambe DJ Lewis Loud (Bishop) is delighted to be offered the opportunity to star in a version of 'Dick Whittingham' and quickly seduces his co-star, soap actress Tamsin Taylor (Sheridan Smith). However, he doesn't get along so well with his director, Francis (Mark Benton), and producer Di (Samantha Spiro). When his young son Paul (Daniel Bishop) is suddenly placed in his care and Tamsin unexpectedly withdraws from the panto, events threaten to overwhelm Lewis. Will he manage to make his stage debut a success nonetheless?
