The sign previously advertised “Finding Nemo: The Musical,” which closed in March 2020. Currently, its replacement, “Finding Nemo: The Big Blue… and Beyond!” is in rehearsals ahead of its summer opening.

Called “a freshly reimagined show” by Disney, it will include several songs from “Finding Nemo: The Musical.” Set at the Marine Life Institute, the new, shorter show will incorporate characters and story elements from both “Finding Nemo” and “Finding Dory.” Fewer live performers are likely to be used, as computer-animated characters will be shown on a large LED screen.
