 Show Synopsis 

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!

At the Disco, Plain White T’s, They Might Be Giants and T.I., and songs by David Bowie, Tom Kenny and Andy Paley. Additional lyrics are by Jonathan Coulton, with additional music by Tom Kitt. The musical production was conceived by Tina Landau.

Tuition, Other Costs, & Fundraising

Tuition for this summer camp is $115 per cast member. This production fee will include one week of musical theater instruction, a cast t-shirt, several pre-camp rehearsals, and the production script. Financial assistance and payment plans are available. Please email parker@gckidsonstage.org for info. Costumes may require a costume fee to cover rentals, alterations, cleaning, and other associated costs. A pair of black jazz shoes are required for all cast members. Links to shoes under $30 will be sent out to the cast prior to the first rehearsal for those that don't have them.


Due to the participation cost associated with our program compared to the high cost of producing a production, several fundraisers are required of the cast. Parents may pay a buy-out fee of $250 to not have to participate in any of the planned fundraisers.
