Interview with SpongeBob's Chrissie Bhima!
Not content with saving Bikini Bottom from an underwater volcanic eruption, the cast of The SpongeBob Musical took to South Bank beach to clean up the other, very real, danger that threaten their characters' homes: pollution. Armed with litter pickers and biodegradable bags Divina De Campo (Plankton), Lewis Cornay (SpongeBob), Chrissie Bhima (Sandy), and company set to work on cleaning up the beach, ensuring that last night’s takeaway packaging and beer-soaked glasses won’t end up becoming a recurring character in their show.
When they’re not combating climate change, the cast can be seen performing their fin-tastically madcap musical about a burger-flipping sponge at the Southbank Centre when it opens later this month. The show made a big splash when it premiered the other side of the pond, earning 12 Tony nominations, the most for any musical that year. The UK production of the show has been updated to reflect the British sense of humour and lives post-covid, whilst retaining all the bonkers characters, stuck-in-your-head songs, and hilarious memes that made the Nickelodeon show, and subsequent Broadway production, the much-loved, much-quoted, and joyous production that kids (and big kids) adore.
We gave Chrissie Bhima a well-earned break from her cleaning duties, to discuss her role in the musical and why she needs exactly three jellybeans before every show…
