The Rainbow Fish

January 17 - 18, 2019 Des Moines Civic Center



The Rainbow Fish will enchant even the youngest audience member with his silver scales and heart of gold. This new adaptation of Marcus Pfizer’s award-winning books brings to the stage the story about the beautiful fish who learned to share his most prized possession through striking puppetry. Children will be reminded about the joy found in giving to others and to share their own beauty.

The production includes two delightful companion stories, Rainbow Fish Discovers the Deep Sea and Opposites.
