Add to Calendar 01/13/2019 03:00 PM 01/13/2019 05:00 PM America/Chicago The Rainbow Fish Children will go under the sea to find new colorful friends and learn valuable life lessons when the Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia presents classic stories by author Marcus Pfister. In The Rainbow Fish, a beautiful but selfish, isolated fish learns how sharing spawns happiness in an underwater adaptation that encourages literacy and enthusiasm for reading. In companion tales also on stage, Rainbow Fish Discovers the Deep Sea, fosters courage and a sense of adventure and Opposites uses bold images to introduce children to the simple concepts of up & down, in & out, long & short and more. Capitol Theater, Overture Center for the Arts false MM/DD/YYYY

The Rainbow Fish will enchant even the youngest child with his silver scales and heart of gold in a new adaptation of Marcus Pfizer’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.
