|Ripped from the 1992 World Weekly News tabloid headline, BAT BOY THE MUSICAL is both musical comedy/horror spoof and big-hearted satire on American prejudice. When a half boy/half bat creature is discovered in a cave near fictional Hope Falls, West Virginia, the veterinarian’s wife teaches him to act like a “normal” boy. However, the colorful yet narrow-minded citizens of Hope Falls are not so quick to accept Edgar the Bat Boy, prompting a chain of absurd situations and shocking revelations, all set to a peppy, melodic pop-rock score.
BAT BOY: THE MUSICAL contains mature subject matter, comic gore/violence and sexual content.
