Play adapted from movie delights audiences

Jerudong International School (JIS) held two sold out performances of Disney’s Finding Nemo Jr at the JIS Arts Centre on Saturday.

The 60-minute musical adaptation of the 2003 Pixar movie Finding Nemo, tells the story of Marlin and his child 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.

Performers comprised 153 Junior students from Year 3 to Year 6, with additional students and staff working behind the scenes.

Production director Jonathan Lim said, “I couldn’t have asked to work with a better team of students and staff that are as dedicated as I am with making this show the best it can be.

“Thank you to all the students, staff and parents that gave up time to make sure this production was extraordinary.”

Head of Junior School Paul Bannister said, “Watching this production was an absolute delight. I’m always amazed at how our children outdo themselves every year.

“This musical is a joyful celebration of the hard work and dedication of our students, teachers and parents.”
