The Rainbow Fish Musical

Rainbow Fish

“And the more she gave away, the more delighted she became!”


Directed by Jessica Nelson 


Dive in with the whole family and enjoy Maui OnStage’s Education and Youth Program’s production of The Rainbow Fish Musical!

When Rainbow Fish, the most beautiful fish in the ocean, refuses to share her vibrant, shimmering scales, the whole ocean seems to turn against her. Unhappy that no one admires her anymore, the Rainbow Fish seeks out the wise Octopus, who helps her learn that it’s far better to be admired for being kind than for being beautiful. With a bubbly, energetic score, the universal message at the heart of this delightful musical becomes much more than just a simple children’s story.
