There’s still plenty of time to join the Galion Community Theatre as they continue their drive into comedy with a production of “The SpongeBob Musical,” which opened on Friday, June 16. This production is a colorful, energetic, and funny musical that your whole family is sure to enjoy together.

Shows will take place on June 23 and 24 at 7:30 PM, and June 25 at 2:00 PM

“This musical is a great time for anyone who enjoys good, chaotic fun,” says Tony Baer,
director of the production. “Our cast has worked incredibly hard to make sure we have a show that matches the heart of the animated show. This show is for kids, millennials who grew up with SpongeBob, grandparents who had cable in the late 90s, and anyone who enjoys great music. While being a goofy goober of a show, it also tells a story of how a community can become divided over each other’s differences. However, they find that it is their differences that make them stronger.”

This show captures the spirit and power of friendship and optimism as the characters you all know and love face the possible annihilation of their home, Bikini Bottom. This dynamic musical includes songs written by pop/rock artists such as David Bowie, Sarah Barreilles, John Legend, Cyndi Lauper, and more!

Lucas Weaver, the actor playing SpongeBob himself, “The opportunity to perform as the face of such an iconic show is something I do not take for granted! If you are familiar with SpongeBob and like comedy, adventure, and music, this show is for you!”

“The SpongeBob Musical” is supported by Galion Dental Partners and the Galion City Health Department, additional assistance is provided by The Galion Community

Foundation, contributions from the Robert & Esther Black Family Fund through Richland County Foundation, and is made possible in part by state tax dollars allocated by the Ohio Legislature to the Ohio Arts Council (OAC). The OAC is a state agency that funds and supports quality arts experiences to strengthen Ohio communities culturally, educationally, and economically.
