Spongebob is heading to Broadway – along with many famous faces

This story will either make your day or break your faith with society… so get ready for it.

Spongebob Squarepants is getting a Broadway musical. 

Still, even if you have lost all confidence in humanity, wait until you hear who is contributing to the new musical.

In a press release from Broadway in Chicago, it was revealed that some of the biggest names in the music industry are taking part in the show.

Steven Tyler and Joe Perry of Aerosmith, John Legend, Cyndi Lauper, Panic! At the Disco, Plain White T's, T.I. and even David Bowie is contributing towards a special song. 

 The show will have a pre-season run in Chicago before heading to Broadway for 2016-2017 season. 

Casting is being kept tight-lipped but the press release did tease some very basic plot details. 

"The end is near. Only one sponge can save the day. But he's going to need help from some of the greatest songwriters in rock and pop music history."

"The SpongeBob Musical is a rousing tale of a simple sea sponge who faces the unfathomable. It's a celebration of unbridled hope, unexpected heroes, and pure theatrical invention."

We really don't know what to think of this one but one thing's for sure, it will be wacky!
