Disney Now Casting for ‘Finding Nemo: The Big Blue and Beyond’ Coming Soon to Disney’s Animal Kingdom

“Finding Nemo: The Big Blue and Beyond” will be replacing “Finding Nemo: The Musical” at Theater in the Wild next year at Disney’s Animal Kingdom after the latter was permanently closed.

Having let go of all the old show’s performers, Disney is now casting for the role of Nemo and ensemble members. Here is how the roles are described:

Nemo: Early 20s. Plays youthful boy. Adorable, endlessly curious, spirited, childlike and fearless, yet at the same time naïve and vulnerable. Bright and youthful mix or belt. Vocal Range Ab3-Eb5.

Ensemble: Musical Theatre style. Strong vocalist and mover, with strong storytelling ability. Casting will have an intentionally inclusive BIPOC approach.

Ensemble characters will be realized by a diverse array of puppetry styles, including rod, bunraku and hand puppetry.

“Finding Nemo: The Big Blue and Beyond” will take place in the same timeframe as “Finding Dory,” and guests will find themselves at the Marine Life Institute. Fan-favorite songs from “Finding Nemo: The Musical” will return as we reunite with the fish that escaped from P. Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney, as they arrive in California.

Actors auditioning for Nemo are required to perform sections of “Big Blue World,” “That’s My Dad,” and “Not My Dad” from “Finding Nemo: The Musical,” although this may not indicate that these songs will be reused.

Additional roles may also be cast from this call. Interested actors can apply on the Disney Auditions website.
