Here we have a Toy Theatre designed in the style of the court of Queen Elizabeth l where this play would have no doubt been performed!

It includes 23 pages with an abridged script; a cast of 17 actors; a full audience of nobel men and women and your model theatre that can be assembled for performance or as a decorative diorama. 

It's a perfect introduction to the world of Shakespeare for a young audience.

Please bear in mind it comes flat so dedication to making is required. You will need fast drying glue and scissors to construct.

It's black and white so you can choose to colour it in at home.
