This beautiful adventure begins one sunny morning when Lila, a brave and good-hearted little girl, meets a very sad, gray rainbow that has lost all of its colors.

So, with some help from Lila’s good friends (Wise Owl, White Jasmine, Basil, Red Rose, Sunflower, Dahlia, Hydrangea, Violet, Bellflower, Blue Jasmine), the seven lost colors of the rainbow finally return.
The play “The lost colors of the rainbow” is aimed at preschool-aged children.
