Live Performance12:30pm Wednesday 13 December 2006

Scott Paulson and Crisalia Gonzalez will each present original works.

  

It's the Smallest Show on Earth! In our display cases: tiny replicas of famous theatres made of paper.
Paper theatre was a very popular form of drawing room entertainment

This 200-year old art form was most popular in countries with fine color printing presses. Many paper theatre productions were printed to promote actual theatre houses and the actual productions mounted there. This festival features classic productions and new works written and designed just for this festival.
