BDACT’s summer children’s performances kick off in July with the popular show, “Finding Nemo Jr.” Come on out to support our elementary students in this fun undersea musical. Nemo longs for adventure beyond his Great Barrier Reef home, but over-protective dad, Marlin, won’t hear of it. But when Nemo is captured and discovered in Sydney, Marlin faces his anxiety. With the help of new friends like Dory, Crush, and the Tank Gang, Marlin and Nemo find out what “loyalty” really means.

Bring out the whole family for this fantastic show and support our community’s youngest actors!
