Bring the magical, colorful world of the deep blue sea to your stage in this delightful non-musical adaptation!

Everybody loves the international bestseller and award-winning book, The Rainbow Fish, with its wonderful message of friendship and belonging. This large-cast play features a variety of charming school and sea-creature characters, with plenty of room for unlimited under-the-sea extras! These denizens of the deep admire the famous Rainbow Fish, the most beautiful fish in all the ocean. But when Rainbow Fish refuses to share his (or her!) vibrant, shimmering scales (played by separate actors who are an extension of Rainbow Fish), 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 (whose tentacles are also played by separate actors). Octopus helps the young fish learn that it s far better to be admired for being kind than for being beautiful.

With bubbly, energetic dialogue full of fun, fishy wordplay, this non-musical version invites wonderful creativity and flexibility, framed in a universal message of love, sharing, and kindness that is so much more than just a simple children s story.

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

Note: A small-cast version of this play, ideal for touring and TYA productions with a cast of 5-9 and a similar running time, is also available.
