The Spongebob Musical is a wacky and energetic stage production that follows the beloved yellow sponge and his friends in Bikini Bottom as they try to save their underwater home from impending doom. The crisis is caused by a volcano that is about to erupt and destroy everything in its path. SpongeBob, along with his best friend Patrick, Sandy the squirrel, and other quirky characters, embark on a hilarious and sometimes surreal adventure to find a way to stop the eruption and save their town. Along the way, they encounter obstacles, unexpected allies, and even a few musical numbers that will have you tapping your feet and laughing out loud. With colorful sets and costumes, catchy tunes, and plenty of silliness, "SpongeBob the Musical" is a must-see for fans of the animated series and anyone who loves a good laugh.

Why "The SpongeBob Musical?"- a statement from the Artistic Leadership Committee
"On the surface it may seem like a silly show for kids, but if you dive a little deeper (see what I did there?) SpongeBob reminds all of us that every single person in the world has value and it is through strength in community and diversity that we can achieve anything. In addition to its beautiful message, this show will also help us meet our mission to inspire audiences (young and old) AND to entertain with its soundtrack that features music and lyrics by acts like Sara Bareilles, David Bowie, Panic! At the Disco, Cyndi Lauper, Steven Tyler, John Legend, and more!"
