Grade 4 to 12 students will work as actors learning the fundamentals of musical theatre through scheduled rehearsals before performing six public performances. Each performance is a one-hour full-stage musical, adaptation of the beloved 2003 Pixar movie Finding Nemo.
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. 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.
Based on the 2003 Disney/Pixar film Finding Nemo written by Andrew Stanton, Bob Peterson, David Reynolds and directed by Andrew Stanton

Our family has been blown away by the high-quality programs at CTORA Academy. The production value, the talent of the young actors, and the selection of shows are all outstanding. It's clear there's a real dedication to not just teaching theatre but also showcasing it at its best. Every program we've attended has been touching, fun, and a high-level performance that truly captivates the audience. Strongly recommended.
CTORA's learning environment is incredibly friendly and inclusive, making my child feel accepted and valued. I recommend it to any parent.
CTORA is a wonderful organization that encourages children to be creative. My daughter auditioned for a production, with no prior musical theatre experience. I love the fact that children don’t need a professional resume or headshot to be considered. We have been involved in three productions and enjoying every aspect of the company. My daughter has grown as an actor and can’t wait to attend practices. She is looking forward to being a part of next production.
I would highly recommend CTORA for any child. Not only are the shows very high in caliber with incredible production / directing / choreography teams, but CTORA fosters a sense of community and family among the parents and children. My daughter has made some life long friendships while developing her confidence and skills on stage. We are grateful for the opportunities provided and my daughter looks forward to the possibility of being on stage again with this amazing company!
