Sweet Tracks!

In Phase III+, NTPA’s “standard” production method will be to mimic some professional theatre environments by employing “sweet-tracks” that allow ensembles to pre-record group vocal elements such that during live performances they may project at less than 100% of volume. This enables the performer to focus on choreography and other activities, compensates for volume loss due to masks, and provides a better online audio experience. Studies have shown this approach also reduces “transmission risk” by up to 95% versus regular full-volume onstage singing.

Synopsis

Everybody loves the international bestseller and award-winning book,The Rainbow Fish, with its wonderful message of friendship and belonging.  Now you can bring the magical, colorful world of the deep blue sea to life on your stage!

With shiny, multi-colored scales, Rainbow Fish is the most beautiful fish in all of the ocean, and the only one of his (or her!)  kind.  When Rainbow Fish refuses to share his vibrant, shimmering scales, the whole ocean seems to turn against the vain creature.  Unhappy that no one adores him anymore, the Rainbow Fish seeks out the wise Octopus, who helps him learn that it’s far better to be admired for being kind than for being beautiful.

With a bubbly, energetic score and a script that invites wonderful creativity and flexibility, the universal message at the heart of this delightful musical becomes much more than just a simple children’s story.
