Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?

Yes, there is a Spongebob musical and yes, it’s officially coming to Dublin.

The Tony Award-nominated The Spongebob Musical is coming to the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre next year, making it’s official Irish premiere.

Hitting the stage on May 9th until May 13th, tickets are set to go on sale this Friday, October 28th at 10am, starting at €21.50 and will be available from Ticketmaster.

All about our favourite cartoon growing up, we’ll be able to take a trip to Bikini Bottom in person as we visit the pineapple under the sea.

After becoming a Broadway hit, SpongeBob SquarePants is bringing his singing and dancing to the stage here and trust us when we say, you won’t want to miss it – especially if you’ve got a few little ones.

In this show, the citizens of Bikini Bottom discover that a volcano will soon erupt and destroy all they know, leaving SpongeBob and his friends to sort it all out and save their home.

As lives are now at stake, the most unexpected hero rises to the occasion and with the power of optimism, he might just save their world.

This must see musical of 2023 is based on the original Nickelodeon series, written by Kyle Jarrow and Tina Landau, featuring original songs by Yolanda Adams, Steven Tyler and Joe Perry of Aerosmith, Sara Bareilles, Jonathan Coulton, Alex Ebert of Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, The Flaming Lips, Lady A, Cyndi Lauper, John Legend, Panic! At the Disco, Plain White T’s, They Might Be Giants and T.I.

There are also some songs by David Bowie, Tom Kenny and Andy Paley, so it’s definitely going to feature quite a few bops.
