The Spongebob Musical 2022
6-9 October 2022
The SpongeBob Musical is the musical adaptation of Nickelodeon’s long-running animated children’s sitcom by Stephen Hillenburg. With book written by Kyle Jarrow and original songs by artists/bands such as Sara Bareilles, Aerosmith, Cyndi Lauper, David Bowie, Panic! at the Disco and more, the audience is in for a musical fusion. We find ourselves in the undersea city of Bikini Bottom, inhabited by happy-go-lucky and ever-optimistic yellow sea sponge SpongeBob SquarePants and his equally quirky circle of friends and neighbours. SpongeBob’s pleasant existence is abruptly interrupted when it is discovered that Mt. Humongous, a nearby volcano, will erupt within the next 48 hours and completely obliterate Bikini Bottom. SpongeBob, trying to prove to himself and the world that he is not “just a simple sponge,” resolves to save the day with the help of Sandy Cheeks and Patrick Star when everybody else has given up all hope.
