Bat Boy: the Musical

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

Directed by Hannah Linser-Wilder


Based on an infamous tabloid story, Bat Boy: The Musical is a dark musical comedy about a half boy/half bat creature discovered in a cave near a small town in West Virginia. For lack of a better solution, the local sheriff brings Bat Boy to the town veterinarian, Dr. Parker. Bat Boy is eventually accepted as a member of the Parker family, but when he naively tries to fit in with the narrow-minded people of Hope Falls, things turn dark.

With engaging music that runs from rock ballad to gospel and back, this mock-tragic parable about love, rejection, and prejudice will sink its teeth into everyone’s heart.
