Small Cast Version

Everybody loves the international bestseller and award-winning book, The Rainbow Fish, with its wonderful message of friendship and belonging.  Now you can bring the magical, colorful world of the deep blue sea to life on your stage!  

With shiny, multi-colored scales, Rainbow Fish is the most beautiful fish in all of the ocean, and the only one of his (or her!)  kind.  When Rainbow Fish refuses to share his vibrant, shimmering scales, the whole ocean seems to turn against the vain creature.  Unhappy that no one adores him anymore, the Rainbow Fish seeks out the wise Octopus, who helps him learn that it’s far better to be admired for being kind than for being beautiful.  

With a bubbly, energetic score, and a script that invites wonderful creativity and flexibility, the universal message at the heart of this delightful musical becomes much more than just a simple children’s story.

This small-cast musical was created at the renowned Bay Area Children’s Theatre, where it premiered to great acclaim in front of over 5000 enthusiastic young audience members.  With a dynamic cast as small as five players, this well-crafted musical — sure to become a TYA classic — teaches young audiences that the joy of beauty is in sharing it with others.

Adapted from the book by Marcus Pfister, translated into English by J.  Alison James, with illustrations by Marcus Pfister.
