  • Used to advertise live pantomime theatres in England, this 1930 horizontal poster features all the elements of the tale of Red Riding Hood. An enchanting Red Riding Hood is situated in the centermost portion of the poster, flanked by the tale’s secondary characters: the wolf who is leering at her from behind a tree on one side and her welcoming Grandmother on the other.
     
    Pantomime, designed for family enjoyment, is a type of musical comedy stage production developed in England. Pantomime productions were typically performed during the winter for major holidays such as Christmas and the New Year. Modern pantomime includes songs, slapstick comedy dancing, gender-crossing, and topical humor with a story loosely based on a well-known fairy tale. In this case, the Red Riding Hood. It is a participatory form of theatre where the audience is encouraged to sing along with the music and shout out phrases to the performers. Pantomime is still performed today throughout Britain and, to a lesser extent, in other English-speaking countries (Wikipedia).
