Edgar (Gage) is a half boy/half bat creature who is discovered in a cave in a rural American town. The local sheriff brings Bat Boy to the home of the town veterinarian, Dr. Parker (Nicholas), where he is eventually accepted as a member of the family by the veterinarian’s wife, Meredith (Hamilton- Barritt), and teenage daughter, Shelley (Steele). However, resentment and a dreadful secret about his shocking origins threaten to turn the town, and everyone he loves against him.
The rock horror musical first premiered on Halloween in 1997 and features music and lyrics by Laurence O’Keefe (Heathers, Legally Blonde). It has had a few off-Broadway and West End runs since its premiere and has garnered a strong following.
