The Rainbow Fish Musical

Rainbow Fish

“And the more he gave away, the more delighted he 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 their vibrant, shimmering scales, the whole ocean seems to turn against them. Unhappy that no one admires them anymore, the Rainbow Fish seeks out the wise Octopus, who helps them 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.
