Disney’s Finding Nemo Kids

Music and Lyrics by Kristen Anderson-Lopez, Robert Lopez
Book Adapted by Lindsay Anderson
Music and Orchestrations Adapted and Arranged by Myrna Conn
Presented by Oregon Coast Council for the Arts’ Summer Theatre Camp

Disney’s Finding Nemo Kids is a shortened 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.

Disney’s Finding Nemo Kids is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. (

Based on the 2003 Disney / Pixar film Finding Nemo written by Andrew Stanton, Bob Peterson, David Reynolds and directed by Andrew Stanton

About Anna Zimmerman: Anna has loved theater her whole life. She performed in many plays while she was in school and proceeded to major in theater at Portland State University. She also loves teaching, so she got her masters in education while still performing around the Portland area and working in children’s theater camps in the summer. Now, after moving to the coast, she has performed in multiple productions at the Newport Performing Arts Center (PAC), including The Addams Family, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Othello, all while teaching at Toledo Elementary School. Now she is thrilled to combine her two loves, teaching and theater, by directing one of this year’s summer theater camp productions.
