Who can audition?

All adults and students currently in 8th grade or above may audition.

I do a great impression of a character! or, I’m not great at impressions…

The performers in this show will speak mostly in their own voices, with just a hint of the cartoon character’s tone. Also, we’re considering ALL individuals for ALL roles regardless of gender, age, height/build, race, or any other factor! Just be yourself—and prepare to audition with an open mind and a sense of curiosity.

So… SpongeBob?

Yes! The SpongeBob Musical is a brand-new show that opened on Broadway in 2017 and was nominated for 12 Tony Awards. If you’re thinking juvenile humor and mascot costumes, think again! This musical is full of heart and features colorful, creative and imaginative design. The characters are represented in “human” form wearing costumes loosely inspired by the cartoon.

In The SpongeBob Musical, the stakes are higher than ever as SpongeBob and his undersea friends have to save Bikini Bottom from total annihilation! Based on the beloved animated series, this off-the-wall musical comedy features music from many different stars such as David Bowie, Aerosmith, Sara Bareilles, Yolanda Adams, Cyndi Lauper, Panic! At the Disco, and many more.

Sandy, SpongeBob and Patrick in the Broadway show

All around the theatre, the show’s sets and props will be constructed primarily out of found objects and “trash” representing familiar locations like the Krusty Krab and downtown Bikini Bottom.

A look from the Broadway preview.

If you know and love SpongeBob, you’ll be right at home in your pineapple under the sea. Even if not, though, you’ll fall in love with the show’s hilarious script, catchy tunes and sense of pure joy!
