Spotlights present youth production of Finding Nemo, Jr.
Disney’s Finding Nemo JR. is a 60-minute musical adaptation of the beloved 2003 Pixar movie Finding Nemo, with new music by award-winning songwriting team Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez. Marlin, an anxious and over-protective clownfish, lives in the Great Barrier Reef with his child, Nemo, who longs to explore the world beyond their anemone home. But when Nemo is captured and taken to Sydney, Marlin faces his fears and sets off on an epic adventure across the ocean. With the help of lovable characters such as optimistic Dory, laid-back sea turtle Crush, and the supportive Tank Gang, Marlin and Nemo both overcome challenges on their journey to find each other and themselves.
Performances are Sept. 15-17 and Sept. 22-24 and will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and at 3 p.m. on Sunday. There will be an additional 6 p.m. show on Sunday, Sept. 24.
The show is directed by Tim Anderson with music direction by Ryan Bergeron.
