This was a toy theater production. It is a form of puppetry that has its roots in 1800s Europe. It is also referred to as model theater or paper theater. One of the prominent features of this form of puppetry is its miniature scale.
For this production the proscenium opening was approximately 4 feet wide by 3 feet tall. The entire production was contained within an independent stage setup with wings and such all of the same scale. Most of the lighting elements were built into the stage itself.
