MUSICAL THEATRE & PANTOMIME

The Musical theatre has produced some of the best-loved and longest running thearical productions of all time.  From Rodgers and Hammerstein in the 1950s and 1960s to Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice in the 1970s and 1980s.  Whilst programmes and other ephemera from these productions are quite commonplace, the posters are a comparative rarity.  Unlike cinema posters, theatrical posters are produced in very small quantities, as the show usually plays in a localised venue for what is usually a very limited time span.  Theatre posters are produced in 3 main formats - the 'Playbill' (approx 20 x 12 or 20 x 13 inches), the 'double-crown' (30 x 20 inches) and the 'quad' (40 x 30 inches).  Double-crowns and quads are particularly rare.  Our collection of ORIGINAL musical theatre posters includes many posters from an Emile Littler archive which were preserved by Patrick Selby, who was for many years the production and advertising manager for Emile Littler and his Stoll Moss Empire group.  From the 1940s to the 1970s Emile Littler was the undisputed king of musical theatre and pantomime and was responsible for launching some of the musical theatre's biggest hits.  All our posters are guaranteed original and were produced to advertise the original productions.  Scroll down for a selection from our stock.
