The Rainbow Fish
Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia
September 28, 2019 - 3pm
An original stage adaptation of Marcus Pfister’s award-winning colourful story, The Rainbow Fish, and its companion tales, Rainbow Fish Discovers the Deep Sea and Opposites, this delightful production tells the tale of a lonely fish who doesn’t want to share his most prized possession – his magnificent shiny scales.
After taking the advice of a clever octopus, the fish begins to give away his much envied scales. Along the way, he finds courage to explore the great unknown deep sea, discovering a new world with wonderful sights and sounds and friendly creatures of all shapes, sizes, and colors.
The story, brought to life through innovative puppetry, striking scenic effects, and evocative original music, will enchant even the youngest child as themes of opposites, friendship, responsible decision making, and relationship skills are examined.
“The Mermaid Theatre puppeteers have truly mastered their puppets. If you're interested in a stunning visual performance, this is certainly a show you'll want to see.” – Jasmine Roy, St. Albert Today
