Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia
The Rainbow Fish
An envied fish learns the magic of generosity in an internationally renowned puppet theater’s adaptation.
“I really liked the Rainbow Fish—it sparkled. I liked how the dolphin’s tail could move.” —Brooke Veinot, age 6
In show after show, Mermaid brings alive the most visually stunning children’s books. Here, the company uses black light puppetry and original music to tell Marcus Pfister’s 1992 underwater tale of a fish who learns to share his shimmering silver scales. Acclaimed for interpretations of the works of Eric Carle (The Very Hungry Caterpillar) and Leo Lionni (Swimmy, Frederick and Inch by Inch), Mermaid offers young audiences an enchanting introduction to the performing arts and the excitement of reading.
