Stage Right set to take a journey to Bikini Bottom!
Greensburg, Pa, February 15, 2021: Stage Right’s Student Company will be staging the brand new hit musical; “The SpongeBob Musical”, both in-person and live-streamed from the Science Hall Theatre at Westmoreland County Community College February 26-28. Based on the Nickelodeon animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants, the show made its world premiere in June 2016 at the Oriental Theatre in Chicago. Following a month of previews, the musical opened on Broadway at the Palace Theatre in December 2017. The musical opened to critical acclaim, garnering 12 Tony Award nominations.
The performers, between the ages of 8-18, will be in masks and shields and will be socially distanced while creating the underwater world of this delightful musical comedy. The show follows SpongeBob, Sandy, Patrick, Squidward and Mister Krabs, as they attempt to save Bikini Bottom from an erupting volcano! Filled with the same hilarious comedy you love in the cartoon, this show features a score composed by a number of famous and fantastic musicians including; David Bowie and Brian Eno, Panic at the Disco, Cyndi Lauper, The Plain White T’s, Sara Bareilles, Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, John Legend, They Might Be Giants, and the Flaming Lips.
“This is an incredibly exciting project to be doing with our Student Company,” said Director Tony Marino. “It’s a brand new title, which means we are all discovering it together. Learning a new show as a company is always fun, but this show is extra special because the material is fantastic! We all love the cartoon and all of that humor is in this script – but better still – the musical numbers are flat-out phenomenal. This is a show the whole family is going to love! AND, you can come see it in the theatre live (limited seating, with masks and socially distanced of course) OR you can watch it in the comfort of your own home via live-stream. Either way you are going to love it.”
Stage Right will be presenting The SpongeBob Musical at the Science Hall Theatre at the Westmoreland County Community College Friday February 26th at 7:30, Saturday February 27 at 2:00pm and 7:30pm and Sunday February 28 at 2:00pm.
