[/caption] The form and style of early British pantomime had its roots in the populist Italian commedia dell’arte of the 16th and 17th centuries, which crossed the Channel to England via France. From the commedia came its stock plots and characters, improvised knockabout fun, music.   Pantomime's ambivalent relationship with gender, race and class, its nostalgic appeal to childhood memories, and the continued existence of some Victorian pantomime routines on film are also explored.

Pantomime (/ ˈ p æ n t ə m aɪ m /; informally panto) is a type of musical comedy stage production designed for family entertainment.

It was developed in England and is performed throughout the United Kingdom, Ireland and (to a lesser extent) in other English-speaking countries, especially during the Christmas and New Year season.

Pantomime features in the Christmas Books include the pattern of moral confrontation, the gripping opening, the scenic. Pantomime evolved in form and content through the course of the 19th century, often reflecting wider Victorian cultural trends, and would continue to change during the 20 th, but by the late Victorian period had developed many characteristics still recognisable today: a stable of fairytale plots, comedy, spectacle, music, Principal Boys, dames.

Many Victorian luminaries were devotees of the pantomime, notably among them John Ruskin, Charles Dickens, Lewis Carroll and W.E. Gladstone. In this vivid and evocative account of the Victorian pantomime, Jeffrey Richards examines the potent combination of slapstick, spectacle and subversion that ensured the enduring popularity of the :   Advertising novelty of Ada Blanche as Dick Whittington from an pantomime.

Bits and Bobs on Victorian Pantomimes Pantomimes grew to be increasingly popular and elaborate forms of theatrical entertainment in the Victorian era. describes pantomimes as, “a theatrical entertainment, mainly for children, that involves music, topical jokes, and slapstick comedy and is based on a fairy tale or nursery story.
