The Rainbow Fish, the most beautiful creature in the ocean, is asked to sacrifice the one thing that makes her unique in order to share her gifts with those around her. 



Live Performances Fulfill Common Core Standards, Including:

With prompting and support, compare and contrast the adventures and experiences of characters in familiar stories.

Confirm understanding of a text read aloud or information presented orally or through other media by asking and answering questions about key details and requesting clarification if something is not understood.

With prompting and support, express an emotional response to characters in dramatic play or a guided drama experience (e.g., process drama, story drama, creative drama).

Evaluate and analyze problems and situations in a drama/theatre work from an audience perspective. 

With her lovely coloring and shimmering scales, the Rainbow Fish is used to being the most beautiful creature in the ocean. So when the other fish ask her for some silver scales, she refuses. How can she sacrifice the one thing that makes her so unique?

Will some good advice from the wise old Octopus persuade the Rainbow Fish to share her gifts with those around her? ArtsPower has turned Marcus Pfister’s bestselling book into a delightful and touching musical about the value of sharing true friendship with others.
