The Clayton State Theatre’s fall production, “Bat Boy: The Musical” will open tonight at 8 p.m. in the Clayton State Theatre, room G-132 of the Arts & Sciences Building.
Directed by Clayton State faculty member Adam Howarth and based on a June 23, 1992 Weekly World News story about a half-boy, half-bat, who grew up living in a cave (and thus was called "Bat Boy") the story and book for “Bat Boy: The Musical” are by Keythe Farley and Brian Flemming, with music and lyrics by Laurence O'Keefe. The production is licensed under agreement with Weekly World News.
Following tonight’s opening will be two Saturday, Nov. 8 performances, one at 2:15 p.m. and one at 8 p.m. Next week, “Bat Boy: The Musical” will have 8 p.m. shows on Nov. 13, Nov. 14 and Nov. 15, and another 2:30 p.m. matinee on Nov. 15.
