Finding Nemo: The Musical

One of the things I am really looking forward to doing at Walt Disney World is seeing all of the live shows, especially Finding Nemo the Musical! I've seen it twice, and it is simply amazing. It's like The Lion King -- with all of the stunning costumes and puppets -- but under the sea! 

Here are some photos of the production from my recent trip to WDW on spring break:

The whole production is simply stunning. The show opened in 2007 at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park at Walt Disney World. It runs only 45 minutes, so it's a great way to spend some time off your feet at the park. Plus, the music is great (it was written by the same composer of the Tony Award-winning show Avenue Q.) 

I'm hoping to network with some of the production staff of the show while I'm on my Disney College Program. It would be great to meet the stage manager or production manager and talk about the process of putting on four or five performances each day. 

In the meantime, I'll treat myself to the cast recording of the show, which includes Broadway actress Stephanie D'Abruzzo, who starred in the original Broadway cast of Avenue Q
