Summary note
Electronic reproduction of selected items from the Pantomime Collection at the Harry Ransom Center. The Pantomime Collection is made up of about 400 items relating to pantomime on the English stage, with a strong concentration on 19th century production. The collection consists predominantly of printed scripts, programs and advertising material for numerous pantomimes performed between 1793 and 1952. From this collection, 50 programs and 85 printed scripts have been selected. The selection reproduced here is intended to show the evolution of various pantomimes over the course of the 19th century. As well as familiar pantomimes such as Cinderella, Dick Whittington and Puss in Boots, there are unusual titles (Hop o' my Thumb; Little Lallah Rookh; The Yellow Dwarf) and a wide selection of Harlequin scripts from the 18th and 19th centuries. The selection includes pantomimes by E.L. Blanchard, Arthur Sturgess and Thomas Dibdin.
