Catch “The SpongeBob Musical,” Oct. 15-17 at the Boykin Center.

Wilson Arts and ACT! for Youth will present the first performance of the 2021-22 season, “The SpongeBob Musical,” Oct. 15-17 at the Boykin Center.

This wild theatrical romp is an adaptation of Nickelodeon’s long-running animated children’s sitcom of the same name. 

In the undersea city of Bikini Bottom lives a happy-go-lucky and ever-optimistic yellow sea sponge named SpongeBob SquarePants and his equally quirky circle of friends and neighbors. SpongeBob’s pleasant existence is abruptly interrupted when it is discovered that Mount Humongous, a nearby volcano, will erupt within the next 48 hours and obliterate Bikini Bottom. 

SpongeBob, trying to prove to himself and the world that he is not “just a simple sponge,” resolves to save the day when everybody else has given up all hope.

Purchase tickets to this family-friendly performance online by visiting the Wilson Arts website at to order through the ticketing link, by calling the box office at 252-291-4329 to purchase tickets over the phone with a credit card, or visiting the reception desk at the new Wilson Arts Center at 204 Nash St. S. during regular business hours (10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday-Saturday). 

Tickets will also be sold at the door, with the box office at the Boykin Center opening one hour prior to showtime. 

Due to concerns with COVID-19, the Edna Boykin Cultural Center requires masking for those who are not vaccinated and highly recommends masking for all performance attendees to help ensure the safety of its performers and vulnerable community members.
