Lilli Cooper will depart Broadway's SpongeBob SquarePants on Sunday, July 22, with Christina Sajous joining the company as Sandy Cheeks beginning Tuesday, July 24.

Cooper leaves the production to star as Julie Nichols in the Chicago world-premiere production of Tootsie.

Based on the popular Nickelodeon cartoon, SpongeBob SquarePants is described as follows: "Stakes are higher than ever before as SpongeBob and all of Bikini Bottom face the total annihilation of their undersea world. Chaos erupts. Lives hang in the balance. And just when all hope seems lost, a most unexpected hero rises up and takes center stage."

The musical will end its run at the Palace Theatre on Sunday, September 16.
