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. 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. Soon the entire town arrives and hears the shocking story of Bat Boy's unholy origin.

The talented cast includes Adam Perkes as Bat Boy, Rachelle Wood as Shelley, Emily Macomber as Meredith, James O'Hagan-Murphy as Dr. Parker, Tom Auclair as the Sheriff, and Devin Bustamante, Timothy Campbell, Lauren Cora Marsh, Abby McInerney, James Crapes, Dylan Phibbs, Arthur Pierce, Chelsea Winslow, Savannah Lake, and Linda Swanson Brown as the citizens of Hope Falls.
