Bat Boy: The Musical

A Summer Teen Studio Production
Wells Fargo Playhouse
Licensed under agreement with Weekly World News
Original New York production produced by Nancy Nagel Gibbs, Riot Entertainment, Robyn Goodman, Michael Alden, Jean Doumanian and the Producing Office. Original cast recording available on RCA/Victor.
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.
The Authors wish to acknowledge the generous support provided through the Richard Rodgers Development Award and the Richard Rodgers Production Award. The Richard Rodgers Awards are administered by the American Academy of Arts and Letters.

In this 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.
