The North American tour of the critically acclaimed, award-winning The Spongebob Musical makes its North Texas debut February 20-23, 2020, at Bass Hall in Fort Worth, as part of the Broadway at the Bass series.
Led and conceived by visionary director Tina Landau (2018 Tony Award nominee) and a Tony Award- winning design team, the production brings the spirit of SpongeBob to life with humanity, heart and pure theatricality.
Be there when SpongeBob and all of Bikini Bottom face catastrophe—until a most unexpected hero rises to take center stage. This “creative explosion” (Broadway.com) is “nothing short of genius” says TheaterMania, and theatergoers of all ages will celebrate friendship and cooperation and learn the power of unity and inclusion.

At the Disco, Plain White T’s, They Might Be Giants, T.I., Domani & Lil’C, David Bowie & Brian Eno and by Tom Kenny & Andy Paley. Additional lyrics by Jonathan Coulton. Additional music by Tom Kitt.
