The Arizona Repertory Theatre presents “Bat Boy: The Musical,” music and lyrics by Laurence O’Keefe, book by Keythe Farley and Brian Flemming.
Director- Rob Gretta Music Director- Monte Ralstin Conductor- Shawn Cullen
When a half-bat, half-human boy is discovered in a cave near Hope Falls, West Va., a family takes him in to raise him as one of their own and names him Edgar. Ripped from the 1992 headlines of “The Weekly World News,” this satirical musical tells the astonishing story of Edgar’s struggle to find a place in a world that snubs him, and the love that can create both foolishness and miracles. Comical, yet brutally honest and tragic, “Bat Boy” questions how love is possible for someone so different and how we all seek out our own place in life. (Adult themes and violence.)
