Jolly Jester Children’s Theater is a musical theater opportunity for children in 1st grade through 8th grade. Our production this year will be Finding Nemo Jr.

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 Andersen-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 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 jouney to find each other and themselves.

Try-outs for the production will be held on Saturday, October 14 and Sunday, October 15, from 1:00 to 3:00 PM in the Recreation Department Gym, located at 425 Division Street in downtown Oshkosh.
