Children of all ages are delighted with Finding Nemo – The Musical. The show is a live action stage production that takes place several times each day in the 1500 seat “Theatre in the Wild” near Dinoland at Disney’s Animal Kingdom park. It’s one of the best live shows at Disney so you will need to arrive early to get a good seat in the air conditioned auditorium. The pre-show is entertaining as Nemo intermittently swims through bubbles on the stage.
The 40 minute show based on the Disney•Pixar film features on-stage human “puppets” that are larger than life. You will see acrobats, singers and dancers that portray Marlin, Dory, Nemo, Squirt, Mr. Ray, Crush, and the sharks. Nigel, the pelican is 22 feet tall! The colorful puppets were designed by Michael Curry, who created the puppets for Disney’s Broadway hit, “The Lion King.” The vibrant set features innovative lighting, incredible props and special effects that create a spectacular undersea environment.
The story depicts Marlin, a clownfish who is the protective father of Nemo. Little Nemo tries to “find his own way” but is separated then reunited with his dad after facing many undersea challenges. It’s a heart-warming love story between father and son.
It’s best to catch this show in the afternoon when you can use a rest, get out of the heat or possibly avoid a thunder shower. You’ll find yourself singing along to “In the Big, Blue World” and “Just Keep Swimming” as you are entertained with this shortened version of the film. It’s a must-“sea” attraction!
