Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and Austin Scottish Rite Theater is proud to present an underwater spectacle to behold! Denizens of the deep unite in this breathtaking musical extravaganza. The Rainbow Fish is the only one of their kind who won’t let you forget it anytime soon! Come ride the waves of friendship, belonging and what it means to shine!

Little Fish has always admired the star of the ocean, Rainbow Fish. The shiny scales and fantastic fins create the illusion of being the most beautiful fish in the sea, so why is Rainbow Fish always alone? As their biggest fan, Little Fish wants to include their hero in the fun of the fish school and maybe gain a friend! But, when Rainbow Fish shows their true colors and hurts Little Fish’ feelings in a public outburst they begin to understand just how lonely the sea can be. Follow the ebb and flow of this beloved story as each new character helps Rainbowfish to celebrate their talents while gaining insight into community, sharing and where happiness can be found.

Presenter Details

  • Name: Austin Scottish Rite Theater
  • Austin Scottish Rite Theater’s mission is to share and preserve the historic Masonic facility, serving the greater community through high quality performing arts, educational programs, and events.

    Austin Scottish Rite Theater is an Austin gem – a fully operational modern theater thriving within a stunning historic landmark. SRT is Austin’s oldest theater, erected in 1871, the same year Austin became the capitol of Texas. For forty years it was a German opera house; then in 1914 it became the home of the Scottish Rite Masons who treasured the site and remain watchful tenants of the building. In 2004 the Masons created the non-profit theater organization that exists today; nestled amid the State Capitol, University of Texas, and Austin’s museum district, we at Scottish Rite are dedicated to building community through the arts. We provide quality shows for all ages, with enriching programming for children. For almost a century and a half, innumerable artists and events of all kinds have graced our venue, from the operas and circus trapeze acts that wowed crowds during the 19th Century to the live world music and multimedia children’s programming that delight Austinites today.

    Community and Children’s Theater
    Our excellent programming is created by experienced professionals and purposefully designed to meet the needs of diverse cultural communities in Austin. In our dedication to diversity we amend or avoid programming that perpetuates non-inclusive values. Our strategies include cross-casting, adaptation, new works, and community-based collaboration to meet the needs of all.
