theater

Hello!

This is my first post, so I apologize if I miss some typophile-related etiquette. :)

Anyways, I need to design a book of eight theater plays. They are adaptations of kids' classics like Mary Poppins, Robin Hood, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and the like by a croatian author. However, the book is not targeted (only) towards kids, but to anyone interested in making these plays come to life---actors, directors, etc---and friends of a local town theater these plays originate from. The editor would like for the book to be as inviting as possible to read.

Plays are cheerful in tone and have a bit of a rural and/or 'retro' feeling to them. There is a subtle environmentalistic message which expands through all of the plays in the book.

Can anyone help me out with these typefaces? It was printed around 1882
Both the type "Showprinting" "poster cuts" and "colored and pained design"

Apologies for the blurry photo...

Hello, I'm working on a literary magazine and there's the script for a theater piece. It's dialogue-based, with character names in front of each line. What's a good way to typeset this?

Hi all, was wondering if there were any particluarly theatre-oriented typefaces in your minds... I'm just starting a new project and need a kick start, and need the client to get away from Bleeding Cowboys...

Thanks in advance!

Would like help identifying this typeface. I realize this is possibly a custom typeface, but if that is the case, any suggestions for a typeface this may be based on?
