When asked about SpongeBob the Musical, Anna Fisher, Associate Artistic Director said, "As much as I dislike the actual cartoon, I absolutely love this Tony award winning Broadway musical! The music is an eclectic selection of original songs written by everyone from John Legend to Panic! at the Disco to Aerosmith and the zany characters are fun and diverse. This is a show that provides so many great roles for the entire cast."
SpongeBob the Musical is sure to be a hit with the kids this year. Plunge into this stunning all-singing, all-dancing, dynamic stage show! When the citizens of Bikini Bottom discover that a volcano will soon erupt and destroy their humble home, SpongeBob and his friends must come together to save the fate of their undersea world!
