SHANTY'S MINIATURE TOY
VICTORIAN PAPER THEATRE SHOWS
What is Miniature Victorian Paper Theatre? Also known by the names of Toy or Model Theatre.
It's quite like nothing you have seen before!
The picture says it all. Conceived in England in 1812, it is a form of puppetry that grew out of London West End Theatre shows...a way for people to recreate the plays they had seen on stage in a theatre at home, by doing it themselves on a miniature stage, using paper cut-out figures, lighting, scenery and special effects.
