The Henry Players HYPE program is staging the Tony Award Winning musical “The SpongeBob Musical” this summer. We will be holding auditions May 9-10-11 to find talented children needed for the cast from ages 11 to 18.
For auditions, children will need to be prepared to sing a 60- to 90-second song from a different musical or “The SpongeBob Musical” with their own accompanying music on a phone or CD. Those interested in a speaking part will need to memorize a short monologue.
The show is based on the beloved children’s cartoon as SpongeBob and all of Bikini Bottom face the total annihilation of their undersea world. As 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.
The SpongeBob Musical was named best musical by the Drama Desk Awards and Outer Critics Circle and earned 12 Tony Award nominations – the most nominated musical of the 2017-2018 theatre season. It features original music from Aerosmith, Sara Bareilles, The Flaming Lips, Lady A, Cyndi Lauper and John Legend among others.
Once the show is cast, rehearsals will take place June 13 to July 6 The show dates are July 7-10.
