The Coterie Theatre returns to indoor performances on its main stage with
the world premiere of The SpongeBob Musical for Young Audiences!
A legendary roster of Grammy Award winners… One of the world’s most beloved and unforgettable characters… Turn them loose on stage and what do you get? The undersea town of Bikini Bottom! Inhabited by an ever-optimistic yellow sea sponge named SpongeBob and his equally quirky circle of friends and neighbors: Patrick, Sandy, Squidward, Mr. Krabs, and even Plankton! Their pleasant existence is interrupted when it is discovered that Mt. Humongous will erupt within the next 48 hours and obliterate Bikini Bottom. SpongeBob powerfully proves to one and all that optimism really can save the world, and shows everybody that he is not “just a simple sponge.”
