The Rainbow Fish

Sun, Oct 20, 2019

Based on the international bestselling children’s book, Rainbow Fish is the musical story of the ocean’s most beautiful, most shimmery fish. When Rainbow Fish refuses to share his vibrant shimmering scales, the whole ocean seems to turn against him for his vanity. Unhappy that no one adores him anymore, the Rainbow Fish seeks out the wise Octopus who helps him understand that it is far more valuable to be admired for being kind than it is for being beautiful. October 12 at 2 pm will be a Sensory Friendly Performance. During this performance, we have added accommodations for patrons with sensory-processing disorders, PTSD, or Autism. For instance, house lights will remain half-lit, trigger-warning lights may illuminate, and we will offer a safe space in our lobby for over-stimulated patrons. This is not a condensed show.
