Saint Louis, Missouri – April 2016
This offbeat comedy/horror musical is a big-hearted satire about prejudice. As ripped from a bizarre tabloid headline and set in a tiny West Virginia town, a strange, deformed boy is found alone in a cave. Once the “bat boy” is brought to light, dark – and hilarious – secrets emerge, shaking the community to its core. A clever, playful pop/rock score highlights the show’s delirious take on American eccentricities.
For MATURE AUDIENCES: In an effort to keep the selection of shows engaging and dynamic, this production may not be appropriate for all ages.
