Come audition for your chance to be a part of Young Actors' Theatres summer under the sea production of Spongebob the Musical!

Auditions are open to anyone in grades 8th through college.

The stakes are higher than ever in this dynamic stage musical, as SpongeBob and all of Bikini Bottom face the total annihilation of their undersea world. 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!
