The Petersen Sisters Move to Bikini Bottom!

Updated: Aug 19, 2023

Hannah and Rebekah (otherwise known as "The Petersen Sisters") started work on choreographing their first full major musical, The Spongebob Musical. They will be working with Crane River Theater not only as choreographers, but also as actors in their whole summer season, consisting of The Spongebob Musical, Shrek: the Musical, and Celebrate Broadway.

Although there were a few hiccups along the way, as all summer shows have, the show opened successfully on June 19 and closed on July 2. In Hannah's opinion, this show was one of the most rewarding shows to choreograph. Not only is The Spongebob Musical timeless in it's cast of characters, but the music is incredibly varied, allowing for a wide range of dance styles to be explored and showcased. It is one thing to imagine what the movement could be, but it is a whole other thing to see it on stage and within the story being told, accented by costume and color. After the success of this show, both Hannah and Rebekah are thrilled to see where Shrek takes them.
