Based off a Weekly World News story, the hilariously thrilling BAT BOY THE MUSICAL will be playing at the Abbey October 15 - 31.

BAT BOY 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 where he is eventually accepted as a member of the family and taught to act like a "normal" boy by the veterinarian's wife and teenage daughter. While Bat Boy struggles to be accepted by the townspeople of Hope Falls, it isn't long before his unholy origin is revealed.
