THE ARTS SOCIETY EAST SUSSEX

The Magic of Pantomime

A Lecture by Ian Gledhill

 

The history of this enduring and peculiarly British institution, from its origins in 16th century Italian commedia dell’arte through the influence of 19th century music hall, to the family shows that are still much loved today.  On the way we examine the origins of some of the stories used in pantomime as well as such traditions as the (female) principal boy and the (male) pantomime dame.

The talk is interspersed with personal anecdotes from the speaker’s years of working (and appearing) professionally in pantomime.
