Bring the magical, colorful world of the deep blue sea to your stage in this delightful non-musical adaptation that s ideal for touring or simply producing with a cast as small as five!

Everybody loves the international bestseller and award-winning book, The Rainbow Fish, with its wonderful message of friendship and belonging. 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. But 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 bubbly, energetic dialogue and staging 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.

With a dynamic cast as small as five players and fun, fishy wordplay, this well-crafted play for young audiences teaches 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.

Note: A large-cast version of this play, ideal for youth productions with a similar run time and a cast of 20 or more, is also available!
