The Rainbow Fish, based on the best-selling book by Marcus Pfister, is a delightful musical about the value of true friendship. It will be at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center March 6-7, 2009.
Two great performances are coming to the Tulsa Performing Arts Center this month: The Rainbow Fish and, back by popular demand, two-time Grammy nominee Tommy Emmanuel.
With her lovely coloring and shimmering scales, the Rainbow Fish is used to being the most beautiful creature in the ocean. So when the other fish ask her for some silver scales, she refuses. How can she sacrifice the one thing that makes her so unique? Will some good advice from the wise old Octopus persuade the Rainbow Fish to share her gifts with those around her?
ArtsPower has turned Marcus Pfister’s best-selling book into a delightful and touching musical about the value of sharing true friendship with others. The Rainbow Fish was adapted for the stage by ArtsPower’s artistic director Greg Gunning, who also wrote the lyrics and directed the production. Composer and orchestrator Richard DeRosa has created the original Broadway-style score. The show is brought to you by the Tulsa Performing Arts Center Trust.
The Tulsa Performing Arts Center Trust is proud to present outstanding children’s and family programs. As always, the series features award-winning plays and musicals from classic and contemporary children’s literature. These shows are designed with children in mind by keeping performance time to around one hour, a great way to introduce your child to the world of imagination.
Two-time Grammy nominee Tommy Emmanuel performs the Tulsa PAC’s Chapman Music Hall the evening of March 22, 2009.
The Rainbow Fish will be at the John H. Williams Theatre on March 6 at 7 p.m. and March 7 at 11 a.m.
Tommy Emmanuel is back after very popular demand. He is a two-time Grammy nominee with a professional career that spans over four decades and continues to intersect with some of the finest musicians throughout the world. A household name in his native Australia, Tommy Emmanuel has garnered hundreds of thousands of loyal fans worldwide. Tommy’s unique style – he calls it simply “finger style” – is akin to playing guitar the way a pianist plays piano, using all ten fingers. He performs the Tulsa PAC’s Chapman Music Hall on Sunday, March 22 at 7 p.m.
