Win tickets to Selma Arts Center’s ‘The SpongeBob Musical’

You can win a pair of tickets to “The SpongeBob Musical” at Selma Arts Center.

I’ll be posting my review of the show on Thursday, but here’s a sneak peek: This production of “SpongeBob” is top-notch. It’s visually boisterous, creatively staged, snappily acted and wonderfully tuneful.

    Please consider me for the SpongeBob tickets. I would like to room with Patrick the Starfish because we both like to talk and I’d ask to participate in his talk show and… I love the story of throwing starfish back into the sea – saving one at a time!

  • Kay Kelm

    I don’t know any of the SpongeBob characters, but I want to go to the show because I have friends in it!

  • Cleo Bauet

    Selma arts center always does amazing, professional productions. Sounds like this one is the same excellent caliber!

    • Emily

      I’d like to room with Gary because I could just sit and talk to him for hours and he would just sit in listen😂

  • Javier cabrera

    I would definitely have Patrick as a roommate! ALL the laughs, giggles and stories from bikini bottom he would tell would be incredible.

  • Frances Mejias

    My choice for a roomie? Sandy of course! She’s smart, talented, loyal and independent! Even in the face of danger and public derision she does the right thing to help her friends and even those who aren’t her friends.

  • Erika Hawkyard

    Squidward, dude is clean, liked music and looks like he would go out for tapas with me.

  • Lily H

    I would 100% room with patchy the pirate! with both of our spongebob obsessions combined we’d make the biggest super fan ever!!

  • Tara Mathis

    I would definitely room with SpongeBob. He’s clean, efficient, and would be a great roommate! I think we would have a blast jellyfishing and eating leftover Krabby Patties! Yum!

  • Montanna Tilton

    I love local theater and this looks like such a fun show!

    I loved the TV show as a kid and had a giant plushie of the eponymous sponge for years. I wouldn’t mind rooming with SpongeBob – I have a hard time waking up in the morning, and his foghorn alarm clock might be the solution. Plus, maybe some of his relentless optimism would rub off on me! I might have to invest in noise-cancelling headphones, though, because dang, that voice is grating. (all due respect to the very talented Tom Kenny.)

    This would be an awesome night out for me. I have been out of work since mid December due to medical issues. I haven’t really been able to get out of the house, other than for medical appointments, procedures, and surgery. I have been wanting to see one of the actors for a long time because he’s such an awesome young man. Now, he’s in this play, which my niece has been wanting to see. Winning tickets would help to get me out of the house and out to see a fabulous play.
