Son selected the History of Pantomime and its historical roots in Commedia del 'arte. Found this book to be an absolute trove of information with fascinating insights. Product is very good, mailing excellent and price worth it,.

I Have Been A Member Of Performing In Pantomimes For Seven Years & I've Always Thought About Buying A Book On Something About Pantomimes But, Recently I've Had No Luck In Finding Any In The Book Store In Falmouth. So, I'd Thought, Alright I'll Order One. I've Looked Through A Book About Pantomimes While I Was In College. I Thought After Reading Through The Book, I Thought 'Brilliant'. So, This Was Why I Ordered This Book. It Came Today & I'm Sure This Will Give Me A Lot Of History On Different Pantomimes Being Held In Different Theaters. I've Been To A Pantomime Only Last Friday At The Princess Pavillion In Falmouth Called 'To Never land & Back' Version Of 'Peter Pan'. I've Also Been Involved In Helping Backstage Twice For Two Pantomime Productions. 'Blue Beard' & 'To Never land & Back'. I've Took To The Stage For The First Time In 2007 'Old Mother Hubbard' But, I Didn't Have A Character Part I Only Sang In The Chorus. But, I Did For The First Time Opened The Pantomime 'Arabian Knights'. I Think That Performing Is My Biggest Dream On Stage.

Description from book dust jacket 25 May 2011
By Christel Klein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
"Imagine Christmas without pantomime -- without the Ugly Sisters, Dick Whittington and his Cat, or Jack slaying the giant! They are as much a part of holiday tradition as the turkey, mince pies, the fairy on topthe Christmas tree, the holly and mistletoe. But how much do we know about this peculiarly British Institution. When did it start? And how did the characters and storylines assume the form we now regard as essential to the true nature of pantomime?
... pantomime developed out of the Italian commedia dell'arte characters of the Harlequinade ; how men like John Rich, the eighteenth century theatre manager, Grimaldi, the most famous clown with of all with his sausages and a red-hot poker, and music-hall stars like Dan Leno and Vesta Tilley, down to today's television entertainers, have contributed their particular talents to it; and how others, less well known, have created the tricks and traps and jokes, and above all the 'skin' parts (where would pantomime be without a goose, or cow, or cat?) that we have all come to expect ... To those doubters who would deny that pantomime today is alive and well and set for another good few years, this book joyfully and triumphantly ripostes : Oh yes it is!"--copied from book dust jacket
