I went to see “Disney on Ice: Finding Nemo” at the Verizon Center. The show is about Nemo, a fish who is captured by a scuba diver. His father, Marlin, and another fish, Dory, are out to rescue him.

My favorite part was when sharks came out, because sharks are my favorite sea creatures. The three sharks in the show are a hammerhead, a great white and a blue shark.

I really liked watching the skaters perform different tricks in the air, like back flips and spinning around. There also were kids in the show, and they were very impressive.

My least favorite part was when Nemo’s father and Dory were getting stung by jellyfish because I do not really like jellyfish.

“Finding Nemo” was my favorite skating play ever. I went to it with my cousin, my brother Sean and my aunt. They loved the show as well.

This is the first “Disney on Ice” production I have ever seen. I would recommend this show to everyone of all ages because it is fun, amazing and very colorful. I would give it four out of four stars. My favorite characters are Nemo and his father, Marlin. I don’t have a least favorite character. I loved them all.

I also interviewed Darrell Palagian. He is the performance director. He watches the show and makes sure everything goes smoothly.

His favorite sport is skating, and he has wanted to be a skater ever since he was a little boy. He says skating is fun and the best way to get better is through practice.

His favorite characters are Nemo and Dory. Mr. Palagian’s favorite trick is the back flip, and we got to see this trick during the show. “Finding Nemo” is his favorite of all the “Disney on Ice” shows.

Mr. Palagian started ice-skating when he was 7. He also enjoys running, swimming and skiing. His favorite type of music is country, and his favorite song is from “Beauty and the Beast.”
