SpongeBob SquarePants is the musical adaptation of Nickelodeon’s long-running animated children’s sitcom of the same name. We find ourselves in the undersea city of Bikini Bottom, inhabited by SpongeBob SquarePants and his quirky circle of friends and neighbors. SpongeBob’s pleasant existence is abruptly interrupted when it is discovered that Mt. Humongous, a nearby volcano, will erupt within the next 48 hours and completely obliterate Bikini Bottom. SpongeBob,resolves to save the day when everybody else has given up all hope.
Though incredibly fun and family-friendly, the story is also a witty allegory that examines and critiques the politics of the modern era. Adults can read between the lines and extract even more from the musical’s message.
