Colours of the Rainbow

Colours of the Rainbow with Princess and Frog is an interactive show specifically developed for 3 to 6 year olds that will have children singing, hopping and laughing as they learn to name the colours of the rainbow as well as a few lessons about friendship. For Ages 3 to 6.


The princess and the frog is a simple and fun story that we have used as a familiar base for the children.

We looked for the kernel of the story – a lonely frog wanting to spend time with a spoilt princess – and adapted it to be appropriate and relevant for 3-6 year olds living in South Africa in 2014. The frog doesn’t turn into a human prince in order to ‘get married and live happily ever after’. Instead, after showing the princess that he is a good friend, worth knowing despite how very different he is, she makes him a crown and he becomes her frog-prince-friend.

Key Learning:

Friendship – the challenges and fears of meeting someone new; being helpful; keeping promises; recognizing and apologizing when you have been mean; understanding and forgiving.

Diversity – noticing difference; appreciating different abilities; finding common ground.

The Rainbow – familiar objects in the colours of the rainbow; introducing violet and indigo; a song and actions to remember.

Interaction – following actions and moving through space; singing along; answering questions and suggesting solutions; facilitation of when to interact and when to be quiet; engagement of sight, hearing and touch. Involvement increases memory of the performance and its lessons as well as building confidence.

Imagination and theatre conventions – a box becomes a castle, a blue sheet is a river, a black and white set is a forest; a hoodie turns a human performer into a frog.
