Nashville Children’s Theatre brings the beloved 2003 Pixar movie Finding Nemo to life on stage, with new music by award-winning songwriting team Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez (Frozen). 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 and Pixar’s Finding Nemo runs through Sunday, May 19, 2024. This is a Theatre for Young Audiences Version, with Music & Lyrics by Robert Lopez & Kristen Anderson-Lopez; Book Adapted by Lindsay Anderson, Music and Orchestrations; Adapted & Arranged by Myrna Conn. It is based on the film Finding Nemo written by Andrew Stanton, Bob Peterson, David Reynolds & directed by Andrew Stanton.

The Flopsy Bunnies: A Peter Rabbit Adventure continues through June 30, 2024 in the NCT Snuggery. Based on a story by Beatrix Potter, and Created and Directed by Ernie Nolan. The Flopsy Bunnies have disappeared! But have no fear; Mama Bunny is in pursuit. Come along with her as she travels to Mr. MacGregor’s garden following a trail of lettuce leaves in this interactive, immersive play specially designed for the very young. Join in the celebration as this bunny bunch is reunited in time for tea with the help of a little, resourceful friend. Jennifer Whitcomb is Mama Flopsy and Victoria Griffin is Thomasina Tittlemouse. Extend the learning and fun with these pre and post show At-Home-Activities.

It’s not too late to enjoy Grand Night, Saturday, April 20, 6:00 p.m. at Nashville Children’s Theatre. Grand Night is a night of dining on the stage and dancing in the lobby after raising funds to support this program through auctions and donations.
