We invite you and your family to see SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS THE BROADWAY MUSICAL August 3 through 15! Dive under the sea to the world of Bikini Bottom to see SpongeBob, Patrick and more hit the stage in this new musical based on the popular cartoon. With music written by a long list of music legends, including David Bowie, Aerosmith, and Panic! At the Disco, get ready to experience all-new depths of theatrical innovation.
Stakes are higher than ever before as SpongeBob and all of Bikini Bottom face the total annihilation of their undersea world due to the impending eruption of Mount Humongous. Chaos ensues. Lives hang in the balance. And just when all hope seems lost, a most unexpected hero rises and takes center stage. SpongeBob, Patrick, and Sandy team up to save Bikini Bottom. Using science and optimism these unlikely heroes just might be able to save the world!
SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS THE BROADWAY MUSICAL opened in Chicago in June of 2016 before it opened on Broadway at the Palace Theatre on December 4, 2017. After its run in New York, SPONGEBOB launched a North American tour in September 2019, however, the tour was cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The cartoon that inspired the musical aired on Nickelodeon on July 17, 1999, and since has won numerous awards, including four Emmys. There have also been three film adaptations of the series; The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, and The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run.
