The Rainbow Fish Musical premieres Friday


Theatre Off The Square in Weatherford presents its annual youth production, The Rainbow Fish Musical; book, music, and lyrics by Austin Zumbro; adapted from the book by Marcus Pfister; translated into English by J. Alison James; and presented by special arrangement with Pioneer Drama, Inc. 

This production is directed by Wally Jones, with Laurie Jones as assistant director, Clara Chestnut as music director and Jessica Michel as stage manager. The Rainbow Fish Musical begins Friday, July 23 and runs two weekends through Aug. 1.

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. 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.
