Bat Boy: The Musical

2011 Young Adult Production

Book by Keythe Farley and Brian Flemming
Music and Lyrics by Laurence O'Keefe

This delightfully inventive musical based on a story in the newspaper tabloid Weekly World News is about a half boy/half bat creature who is discovered in a cave near Hope Falls, WV. He is brought to the home of the town veterinarian, where he is eventually accepted as a member of the family and taught to act like a "normal" boy by the veterinarian's wife and teenage daughter. Bat Boy is happy with his new life, but complications ensue until a shocking end to his story. The musical is silly and totally charming with an imaginative mix of skewering humor and energetic glee. Sexual content - not recommended for sensitive viewers.

Tickets are $17, $15 for students/seniors. Click here to purchase online.
