Rainbow Fish Coloring Contest - Friday is Last Day to Enter

Enter to win 4 tix to The Rainbow Fish @ The Grunin Center for the Arts

By Toms River Macaroni Kid January 4, 2018

Toms River Macaroni Kid has a family 4-pack of tickets to The Rainbow Fish to giveaway.  The show will be on Saturday, October 13, 2018 at 3:00 PM at The Jay & Linda Grunin Center for the Arts.

The Rainbow Fish will enchant even the youngest child with his silver scales and heart of gold in this new adaptation of Marcus Pfizer’s award-winning books about the beautiful fish who learned to share his most prized possession. Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia brings The Rainbow Fish to life with their enchanting puppetry.

The first of three tales introduces the most beautiful fish in the sea, whose scales shimmer in all the colours of the rainbow. He is admired – and resented – by the entire underwater world, until a clever octopus advises him to give each fish one of his scales. Further adventures follow as The Rainbow Fish finds the courage to explore the great unknown deep sea, discovering a new world with wonderful sights and friendly creatures of all shapes, sizes and colours who are eager to make his acquaintance. The underworld wonderland is the setting for an introduction to the concept of opposites. As a fitting finale, the story ends with the most satisfying opposite of all—give and take—as Rainbow Fish shares one of his shining scales with a friend.

Mermaid Theatre has earned international acclaim for its unique interpretations of the works of Eric Carle (The Very Hungry Caterpillar), Leo Lionni (Swimmy, Frederick & Inch by Inch) and Sam McBratney (Guess How Much I Love You). These widely-travelled productions incorporate innovative puppetry, striking scenic effects, and evocative original music to provide very young audiences with an effortless introduction to the performing arts and the excitement of reading.The Rainbow Fish features these same elements
