Bat Boy the Musical was developed in New York City at The Directors Company, Michal Parva, Artistic/Producing Director. BAT BOY: THE MUSICAL had its initial production at The Actors’ Gang in Los Angeles, CA. This production is outrageously silly, totally charming (and partly horrifying) musical, a West Virginia sheriff discovers a half boy/half bat creature in a cave. The sheriff brings “Bat Boy” to the home of the town veterinarian, where he’s eventually accepted as a member of the family and taught to act like a human. Bat Boy is happy with his new life, but when he tries to fit in with the narrow-minded community, they turn on him. Bat Boy: The Musical is an oddly touching show about fitting in and doing what’s right, featuring wonderful contemporary music and tongue-in-cheek humor. This show is produced by Children’s Theatre of Charlotte’s Summer Teen Studios paprticipants.
