Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia’s “The Rainbow Fish,” is an original stage adaptation of Marcus Pfister’s award-winning children’s story as well two of the author’s companion 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” and “Inch by Inch”) and Sam McBratney (“Guess How Much I Love You”). These 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.

The first of three tales introduces the most beautiful fish in the sea, whose scales shimmer in all the colors of the rainbow. He is admired – and resented – by the entire underwater world, until a clever octopus advises him to give each fish one of his scales. Further adventures follow as The Rainbow Fish finds the courage to explore the great unknown deep sea. This underworld wonderland is the perfect setting to also explore the concept of opposites.
