    Public

    Pantomime was a popular Christmas holiday tradition in Australia well into the twentieth century. Audiences cheered the heroes, loved the beautiful heroine, gasped at villains and fearful beasts, and marveled at the spectacular transformation scenes. Pantomime was also highly effective platform for publishers and composers to promote songs to a mass audience.
