Mineral Area College Presents
Based on a story in The Weekly World News, BAT BOY: THE MUSICAL is a musical comedy/horror show about a half boy/half bat creature who is discovered in a cave near Hope Falls, West Virginia. For lack of a better solution, the local sheriff brings Bat Boy to the home of the town veterinarian, Dr. Parker, where he is eventually accepted as a member of the family and taught to act like a "normal" boy. Bat Boy is happy with his new life, but when he naively tries to fit in with the narrow-minded people of Hope Falls, they turn on him. Shelley and Bat Boy, who have fallen in love, run away together from the ignorant townfolk but their happiness is shattered when Meredith arrives and reveals a secret. Soon the entire town hears the shocking story of Bat Boy's unholy origin.
