Theater to present “The SpongeBob Musical” Friday, Jan. 28
Theater is set to preform “The SpongeBob Musical” tonight in the auditorium.

“The SpongeBob Musical” premieres tonight at 7 p.m. in the auditorium. The musical will continue tomorrow at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Jan. 28 at 2:30 p.m. where tickets are $10 for students, $15 for adults and $20 for VIP seating.

Deep down in the Bikini Bottom lies a community of fictional characters eager to share their stories in song. To enhance the SpongeBob experience, theater is hosting a Weenie Hut Jr. ice cream event Sunday, Jan. 28 for SpongeBob-enthusiasts. 

“There’s just a lot more involved on average in musicals, but it also makes it more fun,” tech director Zeph Kenna said. “You get to do cool things, you get to use cool colors you don’t normally do and you get to be a little more creative with it.”

At checkout, students can use promo code: ‘Student2024’ to be eligible for the $10 ticket, and students must show their IDs at the door. In preparation for the musical, the cast, along with the tech crew and directors, work together to make sure the musical runs smoothly.  

“[The directors] partially divide and conquer while partially balancing ideas off of each other,” Kenna said. “I’ll take a crew, other directors will take another crew and the head director will take the actors and work with them.”

Other fine art groups like orchestra and Farmerettes, who are in the play, have rehearsed for the musical alongside theater. The directors provided assistance that has been a key part in the success of the musical as a whole. 

“I’ve made time, individually, to look over stuff,” junior violist Nathaly Romero said. “Zauner, our director, has brought in a fiddle player who has played this show. So, she has helped a lot with simplifying things and queuing us.”

With a passion for musicals, senior Elizabeth Ramirez tried out for the role of Sandy Cheeks. After earning the role, she’s ready for one of her last plays in high school career.

“I love musicals,” Ramirez said. “I love the idea of singing, dancing and acting all at the same time. I knew I wanted to do [the musical] because it was SpongeBob, so I better go for Sandy.”
