Great Lakes Theater Festival (GLTF) will conclude its 2009-10 season in the company's revolutionary home at the Hanna Theatre, PlayhouseSquare, with a Spring Repertory that features Keythe Farley, Brian Flemming and Laurence O'Keefe's outrageous Off-Broadway Musical of the Year, Bat Boy: The Musical and William Shakespeare's magical masterpiece, A Midsummer Night's Dream. The productions will be performed in rotating repertory April 8 - May 16, 2010. The Spring Repertory features GLTF's resident artistic company of actors performing two alternating plays on the same stage over six weeks. Veteran Festival artist Victoria Bussert will direct Bat Boy: The Musical.

GLTF's Spring Repertory commences with Keythe Farley, Brian Flemming and Laurence O'Keefe's outrageous Off-Broadway musical, Bat Boy: The Musical. Ripped from the hilarious headlines of the supermarket tabloid The Weekly World News, Bat Boy is a classic love story with serious bite. This delightfully delicious twist on the modern day musical comedy tells the amazing story of a strange boy with pointy ears, his struggle to find a place in a world that shuns him, and the love that creates both miracles and madness. Armed with an exuberant score that integrates the best of rock, Broadway, gospel, and country music, this Off-Broadway Musical of the Year award-winner is a witty comical confection that keeps both tongue and fang firmly in cheek.

Great Lakes Theater Festival has brought the pleasure, power and relevance of classic theater to the widest possible audience since 1962.
