Description: Little Radical Theatrics, Inc. presents "Bat Boy: The Musical." Story and book by Keythe Farley and Brian Flemming, music and lyrics by Laurence O'Keefe. Directed by Michael J. Mirra. Musical direction by Mary Ann Ivan; choreographed by Theresa Burns. Based on a story ripped straight from The Weekly World News tabloid, "Bat Boy: The Musical" is a faux-horror musical comedy about a half boy/half bat creature who is rescued from a cave near Hope Falls, West Virginia, and taken in by the empathetic wife of the local veterinarian. "Edgar," as he's named, quickly learns to speak and act in civilized ways as a "normal" boy - even falling in love for the first time. Danger looms, however, when a murderous rampage sweeps Hope Falls, the town learns of a deep, dark secret, and the shocking story of Bat Boy's unholy origin is revealed. This off-kilter satire, which will reunite the director and choreographer behind the Westchester premiere of "Reefer Madness!", offers clever send-ups to other celebrated musicals, a hilarious book, surprising twists and turns of plot, and a lesson in the agony of being different and accepting your inner beast.
