Show synopsis:

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!

The SpongeBob Musical was named Best Musical by the Drama Desk Awards and Outer Critics Circle and earned 12 Tony Award nominations – the most nominated musical of the 2017-2018 theatre season.

While children will delight in recognizing their favorite characters, the musical’s creative team took care to infuse the show with elements specifically targeting adults, including the eclectic musical score. The SpongeBob Musical boasts a rare collection of original tunes written by a slew of today’s top music stars, including John Legend, Aerosmith, Sara Bareilles, Panic at the Disco and more.
