Colonial Players presents 'Bat Boy: The Musical'
This off-beat musical is a mix of gothic horror and big-hearted satire of small town personalities set to a peppy, melodic, pop rock score. Captured in a cave near Hope Falls, West Virginia, Bat Boy, a terrifying half-human, half-bat mutant, is taken into town and put in the care of the family of Dr. Parker, the town veterinarian. Even though Bat Boy becomes eminently civilized, the townspeople cannot overcome their revulsion and suspicions, and, ultimately, tragic mayhem ensues. The musical is a hilarious send-up of traditional musicals and all the love-overcomes-all themes you've ever witnessed in theater or the movies. As the New York Times said, "Big laughs... It's remarkable what intelligent wit can accomplish-- a jaggedly imaginative mix of skewering humor and energetic glee."
Bat Boy depicts violence, sex, drug use, and loud rock and roll, along with gun shots, strobe lights, and fog. Viewer discretion is advised.
Adults, $20. Student/Senior/Military, $15.
Showtimes are Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays at 8pm, and Sundays at 2pm. Call the Box Office at 410-268-7373 or visit the website for tickets!
