Episode 35: Vikki Stone talks Panto! Oh yes she does!

30 Oct 2023

Vikki Stone, British award-winning comedian, actor and musician, joins us to chat about how she wrote the New Wolsey Theatre’s 2023/24 Rock ‘n’ Roll panto, Dick Whittington and his Cat!

Vikki talks about the form of panto, including the beats and the joy of mixing tradition with contemporary. She also gives us an insight into how she prepares before she writes, and shares her absolute love of Rock ‘n’ Roll panto!

We also ask her ‘how do you know what you write is funny?’ – listen out for her great answer!

Thank you Vikki for taking the time to record this episode with us!
