Broadway Smash Hit ‘The SpongeBob Musical’ to Tour the U.S.; Announces 2019-2020 Tour Dates

Are you ready kids? Nickelodeon’s Tony-winning Broadway musical SpongeBob SquarePants is going on tour!

Share the news: http://po.st/SpongeBobMusical

The multi-award winning SpongeBob SquarePants Musical will be touring theatres across the U.S. during the 2019-2020 theatre season.

Inspired by Nickelodeon’s hit animated series of the same name, SpongeBob SquarePants explodes with energy and features an original pop and rock-infused score by a legendary roster of Grammy® Award-winning songwriters. Led and conceived by visionary director Tina Landau (2018 Tony Award nominee) and a Tony Award®-winning design team, the production brings the spirit of SpongeBob to life with humanity, heart, and pure theatricality.

The stakes are higher than ever 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.

Get ready to dive to all-new depths of theatrical innovation at SpongeBob SquarePants, where the power of optimism really can save the world!

SpongeBob SquarePants is a one-of-a-kind musical event with original songs by Yolanda Adams, Steven Tyler and Joe Perry of Aerosmith, Sara Bareilles, Jonathan Coulton, Alexander Ebert of Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, The Flaming Lips, Lady Antebellum, Cyndi Lauper, John Legend, Panic! At the Disco, Plain White T’s, They Might Be Giants and T.I., and a song by David Bowie and by SpongeBob SquarePants voice actor Tom Kenny and Andy Paley. Additional lyrics by Jonathan Coulton. Additional music by Tom Kitt.

SpongeBob SquarePants features a book by Kyle Jarrow, music supervision, orchestrations and arrangements by Tom Kitt, choreography by Christopher Gattelli, musical direction by Julie McBride, colorful costumes and Tony-winning by David Zinn, projection design by Peter Nigrini, lighting design by Kevin Adams, sound design by Walter Trarbach, foley design by Mike Dobson, hair and wig design by Charles G. LaPointe and casting by Telsey + Company/Patrick Goodwin, CSA.

The Broadway cast for SpongeBob SquarePants included Tony Award Nominee Ethan Slater as SpongeBob SquarePants, Tony Award Nominee Gavin Lee as Squidward Q. Tentacles, Lilli Cooper and Christina Sajous as Sandy Cheeks, Brian Ray Norris as Eugene Krabs, Danny Skinner as Patrick Star and Wesley Taylor as Sheldon Plankton.

The ensemble included Brandon Espinoza, Alex Gibson, Gaelen Gilliland, Juliane Godfrey, Jordan Grubb, Kyle Matthew Hamilton, Curtis Holbrook, Jesse JP Johnson, L’ogan J’ones, Jai’len Christine Li Josey, Kelvin Moon Loh, Lauralyn Mcclelland, Vasthy Mompoint, Oneika Phillips, Catherine Ricafort, JC Schuster, Allysa Shorte, Abby C. Smith, Robert Taylor Jr., Allan K. Washington, Brynn Williams, Matt Wood and Tom Kenny as the French Narrator.

The SpongeBob SquarePants Musical has a running time of 2 hours 30 minutes, and features two acts (ACT I: 1 hour 15 minutes; ACT II: 1 hour) and a 15 minute intermission.

It’s currently unknown whether any of the original Broadway cast will be reprising their characters for the U.S. tour of the show. However, judging from the first promotional photo release, it’ll feature a new ensemble cast.

The critically acclaimed SpongeBob SquarePants musical was named Best Musical by the Drama Desk Awards and Outer Critics Circle and earned 12 Tony Award nominations – the most nominated musical of the 2017-2018 theatre season – including nods for Best Musical, director Tina Landau, book writer Kyle Jarrow, title player Ethan Slater (in his Broadway debut), and the all-star roster of songwriters (including Sara Bareilles, Cyndi Lauper, and John Legend) who contributed to the score. The production earned 12 Tony Award nominations including best musical, equaling Mean Girls for the most of any show this season, and while The Band’s Visit swept the honors, SpongeBob did score a deserved win for Best Scenic Design of a Musical for David Zinn’s scenic design. The show’s director, Tina Landau, earned a Tony Award nomination for her inventive and unconventional approach to the material that humanized the characters than creating literal representations of the familiar Nickelodeon cartoon.

To be announced.

New tour dates to be announced. Check back to see if The SpongeBob Musical will be coming to your city!

Following a Chicago tryout during summer 2016, SpongeBob SquarePants: The Broadway Musical opened at Broadway’s Palace Theatre during Fall 2017, where it ran for 327 regular performances and 29 previews, defying critical expectations by earning some of the warmest reviews of the season. The show closed in September 2018 to make way for refurbishments at the Palace Theatre.

Early in 2019, school and youth group licensing rights will be available, with professional licensing to follow. A North American tour will begin fall 2019.

SpongeBob SquarePants first debuted on Nickelodeon USA on May 1, 1999 and is still going strong.

Since its launch in July 1999, SpongeBob SquarePants has emerged as a pop culture phenomenon. The series has been the most-watched animated program with kids 2-11 for more than 15 consecutive years, and over the past several years, it has averaged more than 100,000,000 total viewers every quarter across all Nickelodeon networks. SpongeBob SquarePants is the most widely distributed property in Viacom International Media Networks history, seen in more than 208 countries and territories and translated in 55+ languages. The character-driven cartoon chronicles the nautical and sometimes nonsensical adventures of SpongeBob, an incurably optimistic and earnest sea sponge, and his undersea friends in the fictional underwater city of Bikini Bottom. Among those friends are SpongeBob’s best friend, a pink starfish named Patrick Star, his neighbor and co-worker octopus Squidward Tentacles, and Sandy Cheeks, a squirrel from Texas.

SpongeBob SquarePants is created by Stephen Hillenburg, who previously worked as a writer, director and creative director on Nickelodeon’s animated series Rocko’s Modern Life. Hillenburg graduated from the California Institute of the Arts with a master’s degree in experimental animation and his undergraduate degree, from Humboldt State University, was in natural science with an emphasis in marine biology. Hillenburg executive produced the series until his untimely passing in November 2018. His first feature film, The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, which debuted Nov. 19, 2004 and his second theatrical, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, hit theaters Feb. 6, 2015, landing at #1 opening weekend.

SpongeBob SquarePants has been renewed through to at least the show’s twelfth season, will be celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2019, has its own critically acclaimed Broadway show, set to tour the U.S. from Fall 2019, and has a third upcoming movie, The SpongeBob Movie: It’s a Wonderful Sponge, set to be released in Summer 2020. Nickelodeon also recently revealed plans to spin off the characters from SpongeBob SquarePants into their own stand-alone series, specials and feature-length movies. The series is produced at Nickelodeon in Burbank.

“It’s a pretty big deal for us and for Wichita to be able to bring ‘Spongebob’ on the first national tour. It’s exciting,” Amy Hamm, executive director of The American Theatre Guild, told The Wichita Eagle. “We’re feeling confident this is a show that audiences are going to love.”

The characters don’t wear the exact costumes of their cartoon counterparts, she said, but enough for anyone who has seen the series to know who they are.

Rather than one composer, the music for “Spongebob” was written by various pop-rock performers, including David Bowie, Plain White T’s, Panic! at the Disco, Cyndi Lauper, Flaming Lips, John Legend, Aerosmith, They Might Be Giants and Bareilles.

“It’s kind of a neat twist in addition to being a big, bright, fun show with a ton of heart,” Hamm said. “I think it will be a surprise because it has some amazing messages about friendship and teamwork. It’s an important kind of show to have now, a good show with a good message.”

“I’m excited about the lineup of shows we’re announcing for the 2019-2020 season,” said Ty Sutton, President and CEO of Victoria Theatre Association. “The Premier Health Broadway Series features two Ohio premieres, hot new titles such as ‘The Spongebob Musical,’ ‘Summer: The Donna Summer,’ and ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,’ as well as beloved revivals like ‘Cats,’ ‘Once On This Island,’ and the ‘Rent 20th Anniversary Tour.’ Plus, we have several great shows booked as part of our Projects Unlimited Star Attractions, including ‘Black Violin,’ ‘The Color Purple,’ ‘The Midtown Men: Holiday Hits Tour,’ ‘We Shall Overcome: A Celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,’ ‘Drum Tao 2020’ and more to be announced later.”

“We are very excited to bring a lineup of critically acclaimed shows and family favorites to the Boch Center next season, including the Boston premiere of THE SPONGEBOB MUSICAL,” said Josiah A. Spaulding, President & CEO of the Boch Center. “In addition to our diverse lineup of concerts, comedy, variety and dance engagements, these shows offer something for the whole family to enjoy!”

“This Broadway Lights season is heavy on family-friendly shows, so we wanted to put ‘The SpongeBob Musical’ into the Extras series for variety,” explains Tom Gabbard, president and CEO of Charlotte, NC’s Blumenthal.

AT&T’s U-Verse and DirecTV May Drop Nickelodeon and Other Viacom Channels

Please visit KeepViacom.com for full information.

Viacom has begun warning viewers that its networks might be dropped by AT&T’s U-Verse and DirecTV.

The media giant started running spots featuring its networks at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 19, 2019. Nickelodeon’s spot warns that viewers could soon be missing out on Viacom’s 22-plus channels and urges them to call AT&T to keep the networks available. Meanwhile, Comedy Central’s spot features Trevor Noah, host of The Daily Show delivering the message that Viacom’s channels could go dark if no deal is reached in time. Viacom’s current contract with AT&T’s DirecTV is set to expire midnight ET on Friday, March 22, 2019. Viewers are advised to visit Please visit KeepViacom.com for more information.

In a statement, Viacom said it was the top cable family on the AT&T service and said that it has made offers to AT&T that would allow subscribers to keep Nickelodeon, BET, MTV, Comedy Central and Paramount while lowering cable bills.

“Viacom is the No. 1 cable family serving key customers and communities on AT&T-DirecTV’s services across kids, teens, 18-49, African Americans and Hispanics. We have made a series of offers that are good for consumers and good for AT&T – giving subscribers more access to the Viacom channels they love, including Nickelodeon, BET, MTV, Comedy Central and Paramount, while enabling AT&T-DirecTV to lower customers’ bills in the process.

Unfortunately, AT&T is abusing its new market position by favoring its own content – which significantly underperforms Viacom’s – to stifle competition. AT&T-DirecTV’s behavior is also consistent with a recent pattern of gouging their customers by charging them higher prices for an inferior product with fewer channels. Especially troubling, AT&T-DirecTV is marginalizing diverse audiences in its new DTV packages and threatening to do the same with their existing products.

Viacom is committed to developing strong relationships with our distribution partners. We have successfully renewed a series of distribution relationships representing more than half our subscriber base over the last two years and have not had a disruption in our service since 2014. While we continue to make every effort to reach a new carriage agreement, AT&T’s unwillingness to engage in constructive conversations unfortunately could force a disruption in service.”

AT&T, which acquired Time Warner last year, has promised to be aggressive about programming costs on its pay-TV services, particularly DirecTV, which has been losing subscribers.

Last week, AT&T said it was raising the price on its DirecTV Now virtual MVPD service and rearranged some of its programming packages, removing networks from Viacom, AMC Networks and Discovery.

Viacom notes that if AT&T blacks out its networks on Friday, viewers will be missing key events including Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards 2019, airing Saturday, new episodes of Double Dare, Knight Squad, and Henry Danger, and BET’s one-hour primetime news special American Injustice featuring Senators Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, who are also presidential candidates.

From Variety:

Viacom Goes to War With AT&T Over DirecTV Carriage Deal

Viacom has declared war against AT&T, blasting the telco giant on several fronts as the companies wrestle over a carriage renewal deal that is vital to Viacom’s long-term financial health.

As of today, Viacom has begun running crawls and promo spots on its channels warning viewers that Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, BET, MTV and other channels could go dark on AT&T’s DirecTV as of midnight ET on Friday, when the current contract expires.

A Viacom spokesman accused AT&T of everything from price gouging to discriminating against “diverse audiences” with the channel selections in its latest packages of skinny bundles for the DirecTV Now and Watch TV streaming platforms.

“Unfortunately, AT&T is abusing its new market position by favoring its own content – which significantly underperforms Viacom’s – to stifle competition,” a Viacom spokesman said. “AT&T-DirecTV’s behavior is also consistent with a recent pattern of gouging their customers by charging them higher prices for an inferior product with fewer channels. Especially troubling, AT&T-DirecTV is marginalizing diverse audiences in its new DTV packages and threatening to do the same with their existing products.”

DirecTV could not immediately be reached for comment. Carriage battles between programmers and traditional MVPD distributors have ratcheted in recent years as the pay-TV marketplace has grappled with cord cutting and a flood of low-cost competitors.

The Viacom-DirecTV battle has the makings of a clash of media titans because both companies are under pressure to strike an advantageous deal.

Viacom needs to have its two dozen cablers carried by the nation’s largest MVPD, with about 25 million domestic subscribers. Viacom also needs to make sure that the rates DirecTV pays for its channels aren’t severely reduced. If so, Viacom would take a big revenue hit and it would have a domino effect with other large distributors that have favored-nations provisions in carriage deals that would allow them to also cut fees paid to Viacom.

Viacom has faced rate cuts with other distributors including the deal it struck with Charter Communications in 2017. The terms on the table from DirecTV must be significantly lower to prompt such an aggressive campaign from Viacom.

AT&T, on the other hand, is shouldering a heavy debt load and a shrinking domestic subscriber base for DirecTV. Growth at AT&T’s DirecTV Now and Watch TV skinny bundle streaming services has also slowed, as AT&T disclosed in its first quarter earnings. AT&T has let it be known that it will take a hard line with programmers in upcoming carriage deals given the state of DirecTV’s subscriber base.

“We’ve had very good success so far getting to a rationalization of those content costs,” AT&T chairman-CEO Randall Stephenson said in January. “We think this is an equation we can balance…We’ve got to get the content costs in line with what the customer is willing to pay.”

Viacom is encouraging viewers to put pressure on DirecTV to renew the channels via the KeepViacom.com website. In a memo to Viacom employees, CEO Bob Bakish raised the specter of AT&T abusing its market power at the expense of Viacom and consumers now that it is fortified with the Time Warner assets it acquired last June after it prevailed over the Justice Department in a long antitrust fight.

“AT&T continues to insist on unreasonable and extreme terms that are totally inconsistent with the market,” Bakish wrote. “Having recently acquired Time Warner, AT&T appears intent on using its new market power to prioritize its own content at the expense of consumers, who are growing increasingly dissatisfied with paying more for less.”

Here is the full memo from Bakish:

Team,

Over the past two years, we’ve made incredible progress in strengthening and evolving our domestic distribution business.

Not only have we secured more carriage for our brands with existing partners and new, we’ve also expanded the definition of partnership to include new elements, like advanced advertising and co-production arrangements. In the process, we’ve renewed and extended more than half of our subscriber base, securing deals with Altice, Charter, Comcast and others, to give audiences greater access to our brands, and more choice in how they consume our content – most recently in the Charter Essentials product, which Charter announced a few weeks ago.

In that same spirit of partnership, Viacom has been working to negotiate an agreement with AT&T to renew distribution of our channels on DirecTV and AT&T video services. We’ve made a series of offers that are both good for consumers and good for AT&T – giving subscribers more access to the Viacom channels they love, while enabling AT&T to lower subscribers’ bills and provide customers with a variety of packages and price points. Importantly, our offers would ensure that AT&T is able to continue serving the diverse audiences that prefer Viacom to any other cable programmer. And, consistent with our other recent distribution deals, we want to work with AT&T on new opportunities that go beyond traditional carriage.

Despite these efforts, AT&T continues to insist on unreasonable and extreme terms that are totally inconsistent with the market. Having recently acquired Time Warner, AT&T appears intent on using its new market power to prioritize its own content at the expense of consumers, who are growing increasingly dissatisfied with paying more for less.

Because of AT&T’s unreasonable position, today we began to warn subscribers that they may lose our channels when our contract expires on Friday, March 22. This would be our first disruption since 2014, so we remain hopeful that we can reach an agreement that fairly values the amazing entertainment brought to life by our brands, and by your talent, creativity and hard work.

I realize that many of you, and your families and friends may be AT&T-DirecTV subscribers. Please feel free to share a link to http://www.keepviacom.com, which will be updated with relevant news and information.

Of course, we’ll continue to update you as this situation develops over the next few days.

Best,

Bob

From Deadline:

Viacom Warns Viewers A Potential DirecTV-U-Verse Blackout Is Just Days Away

Setting the stage for the next major pay-TV carriage battle, Viacom is rolling out ads across Comedy Central, Nickelodeon and other networks warning viewers that DirecTV and U-verse soon could be pulling the plug.

Viacom and AT&T’s DirecTV and U-verse systems are nearing the deadline of their current carriage agreement, which expires at midnight ET on Friday (9pm PT). The saber-rattling follows AT&T’s decision last week to drop Viacom networks from the basic tier of its new DirecTV Now packages.

In a statement, Viacom said it has “made a series of offers that are good for consumers and good for AT&T,” but got a cool reception on the other side of the negotiating table.

Like Dish Network and other rivals of AT&T, Viacom is blaming the dispute in part on the makeup of the newly constituted AT&T. The telecom giant owns the No. 1 traditional satellite operator, DirecTV, cable operator U-verse (which has just shy of 4 million subscribers) and WarnerMedia’s potent mix of TV and film content. During the 16-month legal showdown with the government, which sued to try to block AT&T’s $81 billion acquisition of Time Warner, competitors argued that the combined company would use distribution and programming assets as a weapon to harm rivals and, therefore, customers.

“Unfortunately, AT&T is abusing its new market position by favoring its own content – which significantly underperforms Viacom’s – to stifle competition,” Viacom’s statement continued. “AT&T-DirecTV’s behavior is also consistent with a recent pattern of gouging their customers by charging them higher prices for an inferior product with fewer channels. Especially troubling, AT&T-DirecTV is marginalizing diverse audiences in its new DTV packages and threatening to do the same with their existing products.

“Viacom is committed to developing strong relationships with our distribution partners. We have successfully renewed a series of distribution relationships representing more than half our subscriber base over the last two years and have not had a disruption in our service since 2014. While we continue to make every effort to reach a new carriage agreement, AT&T’s unwillingness to engage in constructive conversations unfortunately could force a disruption in service.”

AT&T did not immediately respond to Deadline’s request for comment.

At the same time it is warning customers, Viacom is also trying to buck up internal morale. Last week, when DirecTV Now dropped Viacom from a basic tier of its skinny bundle, the company’s stock dropped (along with those of Discovery and AMC Networks) and questions were raised once again about the company’s trajectory. The rebuff came after two years of progress by CEO Bob Bakish.

The new leader has set about repairing the distribution relationships that had deteriorated badly under predecessor Philippe Dauman. Despite waning ratings and a transforming TV bundle environment, Dauman took a hyper-aggressive negotiating stance and the result was a series of pitched and costly battles. Viacom and Suddenlink, which is now part of Altice, had a blackout that lasted three years.

Here is the full text of Bakish’s memo to employees:

Team,

Over the past two years, we’ve made incredible progress in strengthening and evolving our domestic distribution business.

Not only have we secured more carriage for our brands with existing partners and new, we’ve also expanded the definition of partnership to include new elements, like advanced advertising and co-production arrangements.

Nickelodeon Brazil and Riachuelo Collaborate to Launch New Slime T-Shirt Line

Unless you’ve been living under a rock these past few years (no offence, Patrick), you’ll have noticed that slime fever has gripped the world.

Nickelodeon has been synonymous with slime since the number-one entertainment brand for kids introduced the substance to kids in the 1980’s, and Slime is the ultimate symbol of free-spirited mess and the physical embodiment of Nickelodeon’s unconventional spirit.

Now, Nickelodeon Brazil (Brasil) has partnered with the Brazilian department store chain Riachuelo to launch a brand-new line of t-shirts inspired by slime, the green semi-viscous substance that celebrities shower in at Meus Premios Nick (MPN), Brazil’s localised version of Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards!

The Riachuelo X MPN collection feature a line of tees for both men and women with Nickelodeon’s famous green and pink slime dripping down the front of them and slogans such as “Time for Slime!”, “The Best Slime of All”, “Rule Breaker” and “Slime”.

Items in the collection are priced between R$ 29,90-R$ 49,90, and are available to purchase now in stores and online at https://www.riachuelo.com.br.

The news follows Nickelodeon Brasil partnering with Festcolor to launch a Nickelodeon Slime party ware line in Brazil.
