The Rainbow Fish

February 15, 2020 2 – 3 p.m.

The Rainbow Fish tells the story of the most beautiful fish in the sea, whose scales shimmer in all the colors of the rainbow. While the other fish dream of owning one of his magnificent shiny scales, the Rainbow Fish is too proud to share and becomes the loneliest fish in the ocean. Will the wise octopus teach him that true joy comes in sharing what you love with your friends?

Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia brings Marcus Pfister's award-winning story to life through the magic of black light and fanciful puppets, as well as two of the author's companion tales, Rainbow Fish Discovers the Deep Sea and Opposites.
