Broadway Beginners Afternoon Session – Half Day


Marlin, an anxious and over-protective clownfish, lives in the Great Barrier Reef with kid 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 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. Featuring memorable songs such “Just Keep Swimming,” “Fishe Are Friends Not Food,” and “Go With the Flow,” Finding Nemo KIDS brings a vibrant underwater world to life on stage in a story full of family, friendship, and adventure.
