Drama grad to take up undersea pineapple residence

The University of Windsor will be well represented in the next production by Windsor Light Music Theatre, running May 3 to 12 at the Chrysler Theatre.

The SpongeBob Musical, an adaptation of the cartoon television series, stars Justin Raisbeck (BA 2007, B.Ed 2011) in the title role and is directed by fellow alum Kathy Roberts (BFA 2002, B.Ed 2003)., with other grads, instructors, and current students participating on- and off-stage.

“While The SpongeBob Musical pays homage to the beloved TV show, it also pushes the boundaries of what audiences expect from a stage adaptation,” says Roberts.

“By infusing the production with fresh perspectives, innovative staging, and contemporary relevance, we’re able to appeal to both longtime fans and newcomers alike, offering a unique and exciting theatrical experience for all.”
