The story of Finding Nemo is brought to life in this beautiful stage show. Nemo, Marlin, Dory, and all of your favorite characters are brought to life though the use of puppetry, but these are unlike any puppets you’ve seen before! The puppets are beautifully crafted, but just as astonishing is the manner in which they are brought to life. Marlin, Dory, and Nemo are easily the busiest puppets in the show, and also among the simplest. The acting skills of the puppeteers are incredible to behold as they express a wide range of emotions through puppets that have simple articulating mouths and eyes that open and close, everything ranging from happiness and sadness to distrust and fear.
Although Finding Nemo the movie wasn’t a musical, the stage show certainly is! Many of the songs were inspired by lines from the film, including “(In The) Big Blue World,” “Fish Are Friends, Not Food,” “Just Keep Swimming,” and “Go With the Flow.” The music is simple yet powerful, beautiful yet funny, eclectic yet smart. After hearing “Big Blue World,” you’ll be happily humming it for the rest of the day!
