Things to Know About the Show
- This show was created by Mermaid Theatre in Nova Scotia, Canada. It is based on the books The Rainbow Fish, Rainbow Fish Discovers the Deep Sea, and Opposites by Marcus Pfister.
- The puppets are painted with fluorescent paint, so they glow under black light! Along with visual storytelling, the show features pre-recorded music and narration of the stories.
- You may remember Mermaid Theatre from our 2013 – 2014 Season, in which they presented The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Other Eric Carle Favorites!
