Arrr you ready, dancers? Ohhhh....who lives in a pineapple under the - Broadway?

That's right - one of your favorite childhood cartoons is headed to the Great White Way. A SpongeBob SquarePants musical will open this Fall in NYC. The show originally premiered in Chicago in the spring of 2016, and many of the original cast members will be transferring with the production.

The musical follows SpongeBob and the other colorful characters of Bikini Bottom as they work to save their city from destruction. It will feature original songs from superstars such as David Bowie, Cyndi Lauper, Sara Bareilles, and John Legend. Each musician wrote a song for a specific moment in the plot of the show, so though the styles are all different, everything works together. The show also features choreography by 'Newsies' choreographer Christopher Gattelli.

Previews are scheduled to begin at the Palace Theatre on November 6th, and the show will officially open on December 4th. And don't panic - tickets aren't on sale until June 26th.
