The Rainbow Fish

The Rainbow Fish
January 26-27, 2019

Based on the beloved book by Marcus Pfister. Directed by Jim Morrow.

The Rainbow Fish will enchant even the youngest child with his silver scales and heart of gold in a new adaptation of Marcus Pfister’s award-winning books about the beautiful fish who learned to share his most prized possession. Mermaid’s striking puppetry production includes two delightful companion stories: Rainbow Fish Discovers the Deep Sea and Opposites.

“The sparkling story that became an international publishing phenomenon!”

Winner of The Christopher Award, the Bologna Book Fair Critici in Erba Prize, American Booksellers Association ABBY Winner, and an IRA-CBC Children’s Choice title–the sweet message of The Rainbow Fish series has resonated with children, parents, teachers, librarians, and booksellers around the world.
