Why See Spongebob Squarepants?

Are You Ready Kids?

As seen on Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade 2017!

Following its well-received run in Chicago this year, the inhabitants of Bikini Bottom are headed to Broadway this fall! Co-conceived and directed by Steppenwolf Theatre's Tina Landau, an impressively starry roll call of musical artists have contributed to the score, including the late David Bowie, and The Flaming Lips and Cyndi Lauper! Join Spongebob, Patrick the Starfish and Squidward on a brand-new adventure for the stage, perfectly made for kids and adults alike!


The story follows Spongebob on a quest to save Bikini Bottom from complete and utter destruction from mysterious forces from the world above. When chaos erupts, their lives hang in the very balance - all until an unlikely hero rises to the challenge to save the day - with a little help of his friends.


First premiering on Nickelodeon in 2009, the adventures of Spongebob is something of a global cultural icon for cartoon lovers of all ages. A combination of slapstick silliness and surreal flights of fancy made it a big hit in countless countries where it was syndicated Now celebrating its ninth season, Spongebob and co have also made the leap to the silver screen in two movies that featured appearances from David Hasselhoff and Antonio Banderas.
