The Children’s Theatre Project at the Community Players of Concord, NH will be presenting the much-loved Finding Nemo JR. on Friday, October 20th at 7 pm and Saturday, October 21st at 2 pm. Based on the 2003 Disney / Pixar film “Finding Nemo”, this 60-minute musical adaptation includes new music by award-winning Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez and is sponsored by local Show Sponsors – The Grappone Automotive Group and Nathan Wechsler Accountants & Business Advisors.
Directed by Karen Braz and Music Director Tony Bonjorno, Finding Nemo JR. features Marlin (played by Connor Weeks), an anxious and over-protective clownfish who lives in the Great Barrier Reef with his kid Nemo (played by Hayley Corkum), 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 loveable characters such as optimistic Dory (played by Elizabeth Vando), laid-back sea turtle Crush (played by Max Yakubovich), and the supportive Tank Gang, Marlin and Nemo both overcome challenges on their journey to find each other and themselves.
Featuring memorable songs such as “Just Keep Swimming”, “Fish are Friends Not Food”, and “Go with the Flow”, Finding Nemo JR. brings a vibrant underwater world to life on stage in a story full of family, friendship, and adventure.
The Children’s Theatre Project was founded in 1996 and provides opportunities for area youth to explore the wonderful world of theatre and learn more about acting, dancing, and singing. Finding Nemo JR. is cast with 39 children who are led by Director and Founding Member of the CTP, Karen Braz, with Music Director, Tony Bonjorno, cultivating this music rich performance. These talented and hardworking children rehearse up to 3 days a week in preparation for this family friendly performance. In addition to learning their lines and choreography, the CTP provides a place for children to find a community of like-minded people who support and encourage growth.
Performance dates and times for “Finding Nemo JR.” are Friday, October 20th at 7:00 pm and Saturday, October 21st at 2:00 pm at the Concord City Auditorium.
