The show is a production by Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia.


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: When his last glittering scale falls off and sinks down into the deep sea, Rainbow Fish finds the courage to follow it into the great unknown, discovering a new world with creatures of all shapes, sizes and colors.

Opposites: Using images from the underwater wonderland concepts of opposites such as up/ down, in/out, over/under, big/little, long/short. As a fitting finale, and story ends with the most satisfying opposite of all—give and take—as Rainbow Fish shares one of his shining scales with a friend.
