Finding Nemo The Big Blue and Beyond

DinoLand U.S.A., Disney's Animal Kingdom

For 2022, this fully updated, 25-minute stage show incorporates live performers and puppets, along with many favorite production numbers from the original “Finding Nemo: The Musical.” In addition to a new script, the show features new set pieces with a fresh look, and a new LED video wall designed to visually extend the world created by the physical sets on stage – such as a 32-foot-long sunken submarine and a 15-foot-tall fish tank volcano.

Venue: Newly refurbished 1,500-seat Theater in the Wild in Disney's Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort. Theater has been completely enclosed, and production and technical facilities have been enhanced to accommodate first-class theatrical productions. 

Story: Guests will thrill to the first Disney?Pixar film adapted into a Broadway-caliber musical. "Finding Nemo-The Musical" tells the story of the overly cautious father clownfish, Marlin, along with his absent-minded friend Dory, as they swim with the sharks, take on the jellyfish and ride the current with Crush the turtle, all in a heroic effort to rescue everyone's favorite clownfish, Nemo.

Book, Music and Lyrics: Original songs by Tony Award-winning "Avenue Q" co-composer-creator Robert Lopez and a cappella musical "Along the Way" composer Kristen Anderson-Lopez.

Key Creative Team: Show Director Peter Brosius is artistic director of The Children's Theatre Company of Minneapolis. Choreography is by two-time Tony nominee John Carrafa. This production is the first major musical produced for Walt Disney World Resort by Disney Creative Entertainment, headed by Executive Vice President Anne Hamburger. Creative director is Michael Jung.

Design Elements: Michael Curry is the leading puppet and production designer who co-designed the imaginative puppets seen in the Broadway version of Disney's "The Lion King."

Performances: Preview performances begin in November; world premiere January 2007.

Show Length: 30 minutes, several times daily.
