World Premiere Exclusive!

Based on the book by Leo Lionni.

Journey to the depths of the ocean as the Theatre for the Very Young series continues this season with the subtly beautiful tale of Swimmy, based on the Caldecott Honor book by Leo Lionni. Being a different color doesn’t stop Swimmy from teaching his fellow fish to think “outside the box.” His uniqueness is just the thing to inspire his school to work together to ward off impending danger. Swimmy may also just inspire the youngest audiences to join in this imaginative under water adventure.

Target age range: recommended for ages 1–5 years
