ABOUT TOY THEATER:=A0
THE GRANDEST OF TALES WITH THE SIMPLEST OF MEANS
Toy Theater (also called Paper Theater) was the rage in parlors across=20
Europe and the Americas in the 19th century, a popular means of staging=20

content, toy theater begs to be rescued from obscurity and re-invented=20
in a wide variety of contemporary

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!
