Are you ready, kids? Bikini Bottom comes to life in SpongeBob SquarePants, The Broadway Musical. Bikini Bottom is where Spongebob and friends live. “When you walk into the theater, you walk into Bikini Bottom,” LILLI COOPER told TFK. Cooper plays Sandy Cheeks. She is a squirrel from Texas. Sandy loves science. In the musical, Bikini Bottom is threatened by a volcano. With the help of her friends, Sandy uses her science smarts to save the day. How does a stage become an underwater paradise? “You can find flip-flops, pool noodles, beach balls, and buckets,” Cooper told TFK. “Our Broadway set is made of all of these awesome objects.”
