My kid grew up on it and millions of kids and families, know the town of Bikini Bottom.  Heck, my best friend still watches by herself.   That's why it is so exciting that all your favorite SpongeBob characters are coming to Canyon on the WTAMU Campus.

Get ready for this amazing family fun performance as WT's Theatre presents "The SpongeBob Musical"

"The SpongeBob Musical" will have a two-weekend run, April 14-16 and April 22-23.  Showtimes are 7:30pm and a show at 2:30pm on April 24th.

“We wanted to end our season on a high note with a show that can help us make the shift back to normalcy, whatever that means,” said director Callie Hisek, the Royal Brantley Professor of Theatre. “Normalcy,” however, is overrated in the underwater city Bikini Bottom, where dwells SpongeBob SquarePants (played by Zane Wells, senior theatre major from Amarillo), an eternally optimistic sponge; his best friend, Patrick Star (Hayley Hurst, senior musical theatre major from Melissa), an enthusiastic but somewhat dim starfish; and their pal, Sandy Cheeks (Socorra Carrillo, senior musical theatre major from Amarillo), an adventurous squirrel who lives in a diving suit.

Join WT's Theatre as SpongeBob and his friends try to save Bikini Bottom from the erupting volcanic Mount Humongous.

This performance is perfect for everyone, including SpongeBob lovers and those who are just getting to know SpongeBob and his friends.

Don't expect the traditional SpongeBob, Sandy and Patrick, but enjoy how the cast of WT's Theatre Cast will make you love these characters event more.

Get ready for an interesting array of music during the performance,  music from David Bowie to Panic! at the Disco to The Flaming Lips to Aerosmith and more.

“There’s no other show like this,” said musical director Bradley Behrmann, assistant professor of musical theatre. “There’s a pirate song by Sara Bareilles, a friendship ballad by John Legend — it’s insane.”

Tickets to this amazing performance:
Adults: $16
Seniors: $12
WT faculty, staff and students with Buff Gold Card: Free

Tickets may be purchased by calling 806-651-2810 or by emailing artsboxoffice@wtamu.edu, or
