Pout Pout Fish

Wed / March 2, 2022
All Day / Stephens Auditorium, ISU Campus

Youth Matinee Series at Stephens Auditorium at 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.

Turn the poutiest of frowns upside down in this new musical featuring whimsical puppets and live performers in a sweeping oceanic adventure. When Mr. Fish sets out on a quest to find Miss Clam’s missing pearl, he discovers there is more to him than his permanently plastered pout.

This colorful adaptation of The New York Times bestseller is co-conceived, directed, and designed by the acclaimed puppeteers of AchesonWalsh Studios, whose work was featured in Broadway’s The King And I, On the Town, and Radio City’s New York Spectacular. Writing team includes New Victory LabWorks Residency recipients Christopher Anselmo, Jared Corak, Matt Acheson, and Fergus Walsh. For grades Pre-K through grade 2.

Since 1999, Stephens Auditorium’s Youth Matinee Series has introduced more than 250,000 students and teachers to the performing arts, both at the theater and in the classroom. These comprehensive programs deeply enrich students’ learning and infuses creativity across the curriculum. After pausing last year, the series returns with a single show in November and the other six shows between February and April 2022.
