The Spongebob Musical UK Tour

Disclosure - We have been invited to experience Spongebob The Musical in return for an honest review. I have chosen to create this preview post, it was not required. 

Growing up big J absolutely loved Spongebob Squarepants. I don't think a day went by without him watching an episode or two and I can always remember him singing the song 'It's the best day ever' along with Spongebob in his favourite episode. Over the years Spongebob has remained popular and if watching him on TV isn't enough you can now head to your local theatre and experience The Spongebob Musical.

The Spongebob Musical 
Who lives in a pineapple under the sea and has become the hottest star on broadway? Spongebob Squarepants! Plunge into this stunning all-singing, all-dancing, dynamic stage show!

When the citizens of Bikini Bottom discover that a volcano will soon erupt and destroy their humble home, SpongeBob and his friends must come together to save the fate of their undersea world!

Cast of The spongebob musical onstage

Starring either Pop Idol and musical superstar Gareth Gates or Celebs Go Dating star Tom Read Wilson (check full tour list below) and Ru-Paul’s Drag Race legend Divina De Campo, The Spongebob Musical is based on the series by Stephen Hillenburg, is written by Kyle Jarrow and conceived by Tina Landau and features a tidal wave of original songs by the world’s most iconic rock and pop artists.

The Spongebob Musical is a hilarious deep-sea pearl of a show that is set to make a splash with audiences young and old as the must-see musical of 2023.


Our Thoughts
We managed to pop along to the press evening at The Opera House, Manchester and we absolutely loved every second of the show. Little J doesn't come to many shows with us however he was excited for this one and I have never seen him so engrossed throughout the whole performance. 

The casting was amazing with all characters so believable and so like the TV show. It had so many songs throughout with each character getting a chance to shine and show off their vocal abilities. 

The performance lasted about 2 and 1/2 hours including the interval and there was a chance to win some 'treasure'. Upon arrival we were given a cardboard bracelet designed like a Nick Jr Watch. After the interval a pirate ran through the stalls encouraging the children to wave their arms in the air and make their best pirate noises. A boy just behind us won the treasure and it was a Nick Jr Watch. 

We loved the show and would definitely recommend it. It's fo all ages as we seen families, couples, and groups of friends.
