Summer show is a great opportunity for students to experience a fast-paced rehearsal process. This is a two week long camp. Students will rehearse daily for two ticketed performances of Disney's Finding Nemo Jr. During down time, students will play games and take theatrical workshops to enhance their training. Camp runs 10:00am-3:00pm from Monday through Friday, with 2 ticketed shows on Saturday, June 24th at 1:00pm and 4:00pm. Auditions for roles will be held the first day of camp.
Disney’s Finding Nemo JR. is a musical adaptation of the beloved 2003 Pixar movie Finding Nemo, with new music by award-winning songwriting team Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez. Marlin, an anxious and over-protective clownfish, lives in the Great Barrier Reef with his 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 as 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.
