The Rainbow Fish!

“It has been an absolute delight to continue creating and playing with these two fabulous casts and all who have contributed to bringing this story to life.  In times like this, the theatre will adapt any way we can to safely bring our community together to share laughter and the joy of live performance.” - Emily Griffin, Director of The Rainbow Fish, MHT Education Director. 

About The Show: 
Well-known for his beautiful shimmering scales, the Rainbow Fish is the envy of the reed. Fawned over and beloved, all of the attention seems to have gone to his head! So, when the Little Fish musters up the courage to ask him to share one of his shiny scales, the Rainbow Fish loses his cool along with the adoration of the other fish in the reef. Not sure where else to turn, the Rainbow Fish is encouraged to seek the wisdom of the Octopus who helps him to see that happiness doesn’t always come from what we have, but in how we give. The Rainbow Fish is adapted by Austin Zumbro, from the book written by and illustrated by Marcus Pfister, and translated into English by J. Alison James.
