ABOUT THE SHOW: THE SPONGEBOB MUSICAL
The stakes are higher than ever in this dynamic stage musical, as SpongeBob and all of Bikini Bottom face the total annihilation of their undersea world. Chaos erupts. Lives hang in the balance. And just when all hope seems lost, a most unexpected hero rises up and takes center stage. The power of optimism really can save the world!

At the Disco, Plain White T’s, They Might Be Giants and T.I., songs by David Bowie, Tom Kenny and Andy Paley. Additional lyrics by Jonathan Coulton, additional music by Tom Kitt.
