After years living in London, costume shop owner Becky Finn is trying to build a new life for herself and fiance Cole in her old home of Egglethwaite, a sleepy village in the Yorkshire Dales.
Keen to raise funds for the struggling village hall she loved as a child, Becky soon finds herself at the head of a colourful group intent on resurrecting Egglethwaite's Christmas pantomime. But, as she quickly discovers, there's more to panto than innuendo and slapped thighs.
As opening night grows closer, Becky starts to wonder if her embattled panto will ever make it to the stage - and, with handsome co-star Marcus on the scene, if she's picked the right man for her after all.
