Bat Boy: the Musical
Thursday, April 12; Friday, April 13; and Saturday, April 14 - 7:30 PM; Sunday, April 14 - 2;00 PM
Based on events as chronicled in 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. For lack of a better solution, the local sheriff brings Bat Boy to the home of the town veterinarian, Dr. Parker, where he is eventually accepted as a member of the family and taught to act like a “normal” boy by the veterinarian’s wife, Meredith, and teenage daughter, Shelley.  In between the howls of laughter and using virtually every style of music, Bat Boy: The Musical tackles American prejudice, the fierceness of modern religion, genetic engineering, and lots more.
