OK But do not like the idea of making a nice theater then using Duck Tape.

Was hoping for something more versatile and compact, and with greater longevity (more sewing instead of tape) but that perhaps puts it out of the range a 5+ year-old could assist with. I would love an all sewn version that would be held up with tension rods to be adjustable to varying door sizes, and heights of performers (children to adult).
