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

Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia’s original stage adaptation of Marcus Pfister’s award-winning book The Rainbow Fish is about a beautiful fish with scales of silver and a heart of gold. The performance, which also includes two of the author’s companion tales, Rainbow Fish Discovers the Deep Sea and Opposites, will enchant even the youngest child with its shimmering scenery and innovative puppetry.

Be sure to stick around after the performance, when members of the company will demonstrate and discuss puppetry techniques, and audience members will get a chance to meet the puppeteers and see the amazing Rainbow Fish puppets up close!  Free with your ticket.

Mermaid Theatre has earned international acclaim for its unique interpretations of the works of Eric Carle (The Very Hungry Caterpillar), Leo Lionni (Swimmy, Frederick, and Inch by Inch) and Sam McBratney (Guess How Much I Love You). These widely travelled productions provide very young audiences with an effortless introduction to the performing arts and the excitement of reading.

Recommended for ages 3 and up.
