Arc Stages to present Bat Boy: The Musical, beginning November 10.
Pleasantville, N.Y. — Pleasantville theater company Arc Stages’ Community Stage presents Bat Boy: The Musical. The Community Stage is the second wing of a company that also includes a thriving Educational Stage and a professional stage, the Next Stage.
Inspired by the bizarre 1990s tabloids, Bat Boy: The Musical is a comical cult horror rock musical that tells the story of a half boy/half bat creature discovered by spelunking teenagers in a West Virginian cave. Taken in by the local veterinarian and his empathetic wife, “Edgar” quickly learns to speak, read, behave like a “normal” boy, and even falls in love. Trouble ensues when a “cow-killing plague” strikes the town and deep dark secrets are revealed. Fast-paced and hilarious, this off-kilter satire offers clever musical numbers, forbidden romance, surprising plot twists, and a lesson in the agony of being different and accepting your inner beast!
Bat Boy: The Musical will be directed by Whitney Aronson, with musical director Adam Spiegel. Starring: Payton Dell, Bob De Vivo, Juliana Giannasca, Shannon Harding, Anne-Marie Kavulla, Hannah Kluger, Graeme McEneany, Julia McCarthy, Liz Nolan, Alan Partelow-Zika, Chris Partelow-Zika, Jaelyn Pollock, and Arnie Toback.
Performances will be held at Arc Stages, located at 147 Wheeler Avenue in Pleasantville, NY.
