BEMUS POINT – Bemus Point Elementary School will present Disney’s Finding Nemo Kids on June 6 at 7 p.m. and June 7 at 2 and 7 p.m.

The show is produced and musically directed by Kasey Way, Bemus Point Elementary music teacher, with co-director Erin Saxton-Filkins, Bemus Point community member and parent. The show features a cast of 50 students in third through fifth grades. Admission is free. There will be a basket giveaway and bake sale to help pay for future elementary music productions.

The stage musical adaptation of the 2003 Pixar movie Finding Nemo features new music by the songwriting team of Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez. Marlin, played by fourth grader Charlotte Dent, is an anxious and over-protective clownfish who lives in the Great Barrier Reef with his kid Nemo, played by fifth grader Sara Johnson. Nemo 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, played by fifth-grader Paisley Wilson, laid-back sea turtle Crush, played by fourth-grader Ethan Darrenbacher, and the supportive Tank Gang, played by Josephine Hatfield, Jaime Long, George Meyers and Spencer Heil, Marlin and Nemo both overcome challenges on their journey to find each other and themselves.

The musical features memorable songs such as “Just Keep Swimming,” “Fish Are Friends Not Food,” and “Go With the Flow.” The show also includes many brand-new songs as well featuring a cast of sea creatures sung and performed by the third grade select Dragon Choir students.
