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

Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia’s vibrant and multi-award-winning new show, The Rainbow Fish, includes an original stage adaptation of Marcus Pfister’s colorful story plus two of the author's other tales: Rainbow Fish Discovers the Deep Sea and Opposites. Mermaid Theatre has earned international acclaim for its unique interpretations of the works of Eric Carle (The Very Hungry Caterpillar), Leo Lionni (Swimmy, Frederick & Inch by Inch) and Sam McBratney (Guess How Much I Love You). These widely-travelled productions incorporate innovative puppetry, striking scenic effects, and evocative original music to provide very young audiences with an effortless introduction to the performing arts and the excitement of reading.
