Bat Boy: The Musical
JANUARY 26-FEBRUARY 3, 2018
Based on a story in The Weekly World News, Bat Boy: The Musical is a musical comedy/horror show about a half boy/half bat creature who is discovered in a cave near Hope Falls, West Virginia. Bat Boy joins a local family and learns to embrace his human half through knowledge, religion, and love. As Edgar, the newly named Bat Boy, naively tries to embrace his new life, the surrounding community begins to raise concerns of his inclusion and the impact it may have on their lives.
Bat Boy is a shocking and relevant tale of what it means to be different and the price of trying to assimilate into a community driven by fear.
This production is recommended for audiences 14 and older.
