A huge crowd of students from Stark County's 10 Catholic elementary schools was entertained Friday morning with the first showing of "Spongebob the Musical" at Canton Palace Theatre. The free performance features a joint performance from students at St. Thomas Aquinas and Canton Central Catholic. The site of the show also is a bit unusual, with the students hitting the big stage in Canton's downtown. Most schools stage their plays on their school property. Performances of the musical were offered at the Palace at 7 p.m. Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday.
