Description

“Are ya ready kids?!” The SpongeBob Musical, based on the beloved animated Nickelodeon series and featuring all the classic characters you know and love, makes a big splash at The Firehouse Theatre this summer. This sponge-tacular musical will transport audiences directly to Bikini Bottom with high-energy choreography and unforgettable songs. Directed by Matthew Silar, with musical direction by Bryce Biffle and choreography by Christina Kudlicki Hoth assisted by Carlos Strudwick, this underwater musical adventure is not to be missed.  

Adapted from the iconic Nickelodeon series! 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! Featuring original songs by Steven Tyler and Joe Perry of Aerosmith, Sara Bareilles, Alexander Ebert of Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, The Flaming Lips, Cyndi Lauper, John Legend, Panic! At the Disco, Plain White T’s, and many more.

Chicago-based director Matthew Silar is thrilled to return to The Firehouse Theatre to direct The SpongeBob Musical this summer. "Spongebob was born out of the desire for a cartoon whose core motivation was optimism. It’s why his catchphrase is ‘I’m ready!’ There’s a reason Spongebob is still universally loved. It’s because in the 20+ years since he entered our world, we’ve never NOT needed that light.”
