The FOLEY ARTIST FISH is a staged role that produces all sound effects specified in the script and score using percussion instruments, triggered digital effects, and other creative sound makers. As envisioned by Tina Landau, “The show is meant to be performed with a FOLEY ARTIST FISH playing sound effects live, and within view of the audience, to accompany the stage action. This could include footsteps for SpongeBob and Squidward (as in the Broadway Production), dings for objects appearing, whacks for hits, and so on.”

In the Broadway production, the FOLEY ARTIST FISH played the PERCUSSION book and also performed many additional sound effects not specified in the PERCUSSION book. Licensees are encouraged to create their own foley score that suits their staging, talent, and resources.

Q: Can I put the FOLEY ARTIST FISH in the pit?

In the Broadway production, this role was performed from box seating near the proscenium.
