‘Finding Nemo-The Musical’

To Make Splash In Live Stage Spectacular at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Finding Nemo

 The undersea world that charmed audiences around the world in the Disney-Pixar smash-hit film "Finding Nemo" will come to life in an all-new musical stage show at Disney's Animal Kingdom. Preview performances begin in November with the premiere set for January 2007.

Featuring original songs by Tony Award-winning "Avenue Q" co-composer-creator Robert Lopez and a cappella musical "Along the Way" co-creator Kristen Anderson-Lopez, "Finding Nemo-The Musical" will immerse Walt Disney World guests in the story of Marlin and Nemo -- an overprotective clownfish father and his curious son -- through a dazzling production that combines puppets, dancers, aerialists and animated backdrops.

Description: An all-new stage musical based on the Disney•Pixar Academy Award-winning animated film "Finding Nemo" that takes guests into the magical ocean world with larger-than-life puppets, plus a cast of 18 musical theater actors and dancers.

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" co-creator Kristen Anderson-Lopez.
