Auditions for the Branson Regional Arts Council’s production of Disney’s Finding Nemo JR. will be held Sunday, September 10, 2023 at the Historic Owen Theatre in downtown Branson beginning at 4:45pm.

We are looking for cast members ages 8 to 18!

Please plan to be in attendance for the duration of the dance call audition 4:45-5:45pm. For the dance audition please come dressed accordingly. You may bring clothes to change into for your vocal audition. Wear/bring appropriate clothing and footwear you are comfortable moving in.

Vocal auditions will take place following the dance call. Auditionees will be seen in age order (beginning with younger performers). Performers will be released after they have sung. Prepare a 60 second cut of a musical theatre or Disney song that shows off your range and acting skills. An accompanist will NOT be provided. Please bring an MP3 or Youtube karaoke track. Please NO ACAPELLA auditions.

You must attend the dance call AND stay for an individual vocal audition.

Disney’s Finding Nemo JR. is a 60-minute 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.

Featuring memorable songs such as “Just Keep Swimming,” “Fish Are Friends Not Food,” and “Go With the Flow,” Finding Nemo JR. brings a vibrant underwater world to life on stage in a story full of family, friendship, and adventure.
