A Note From the Director

Full transparency, when this show was first suggested, I was not in favor. SpongeBob? I am too old, and the little I did know about the original cartoon, I didn’t care for. But you know what, Jason is great and he was really passionate about it, so ok, let me look into it. And what did I end up discovering? This show is fantastic! The music is different: contemporary and fun; the story is one of hope and community, packed with all kinds of zany humor; it is colorful; and the opportunities for community members of all ages and abilities is boundless. Sounds great, let’s do it! Soon enough, we would discover just how BIG this show really is: so many costumes, so many props, so much makeup, so many sound effects and projections, so many different genres of music to try and grapple! This was easily the biggest show I’ve ever tackled and quite a project for even an established regional theater to try to pull off, let alone a volunteer run small community theater. And yet here we are, having the Best Day Ever with an amazing show.  So many people put so much work into this project. I can’t even begin to thank them individually here. Suffice it to say, every name in this program was crucial to the success of this show. The casts of community theater always work hard, they are always vested in their show. But the creative teams listed above have donated hours upon hours of their time to make this magical set, collect and create these colorful costumes, learn and apply make up techniques to enhance this fantastical spectacle, create and teach dance numbers that every skill level could be successful in, light the stage so that we feel like we are underwater and can still see the actors’ faces, create and manage the copious number of props that parade by, harvest and organize countless sounds and images to add to this ultimate joyful assault on all of our senses! I can never thank them enough, and I do truly hope you enjoy the fruits of all of our labors.  


I do have one last thank you, and that is to you, the audience. There is no show without an audience. Thank you for supporting your community, friends, family and fellow theater lovers. I hope you walk away feeling like I do now: Wow, The SpongeBob Musical is awesome!
