Manasquan, NJ - Algonquin Arts Theatre will be featuring the fun-filled musical version of Marcus Pfister’s best-selling children’s book, The Rainbow Fish, on Sunday, February 8, 2009 at 3 pm. This must-see performance, presented by ArtsPower, is bound to be enjoyed by both the young and the young-at-heart, as has been the case for the past three years that Algonquin Arts has featured this show.

Last year Manasquan Elementary school teachers rated this performance as excellent: “Great singing, very dynamic performances, and the children were very engaged.” When asked about the educational value of the performance, the teachers said that the children learned about “the concept of sharing and giving and the feeling of joy when helping others.”

According to Executive Producer Gary Blackman, “The Rainbow Fish at first appealed to us because of its unusual holographic illustrations. We knew that look would be a hit with children, so we tried to capture it onstage. Our challenge was to make a beautiful set while still stressing the idea that the most precious things are to be found on the inside. Ultimately, I believe we succeeded in this goal.”

Tickets to see The Rainbow Fish are $15 for adults/seniors/students and $12 for children. To reserve seats or obtain more information, contact the box office at 732-528-9211 or [email protected] More information can also be accessed at www.algonquinarts.org. Box office hours are Monday-Friday from 9 am to 5 pm and Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm. Algonquin Arts is conveniently located at 173 Main Street in downtown Manasquan, NJ.
