Bat Boy: The Musical

Music & Lyrics by Laurence O’Keefe
Story & Book by Keythe Farley & Brian Flemming

A story about tolerance, fear, and acceptance, Bat Boy: The Musical is a contemporary rock musical comedy/horror show. The subject is a half boy/half bat creature, who is discovered in a cave near Hope Falls, West Virginia. 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 his wife and teenage daughter. 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.

A Man of No Importance

Music by Stephen Flaherty
Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens
Book by Terrence McNally

This musical is a tender tale of love, friendship, and coming to terms with who we are. Set in Ireland, A Man of No Importance is from the same artistic team who created Ragtime and demonstrates the power of theater to create change. Alfie Byrne is a bus driver in 1964 Dublin, whose heart holds secrets that he can't share with anyone but his imagined confidante, Oscar Wilde. When he attempts to produce an amateur production of Wilde's Salome in the local church hall, he confronts the forces of bigotry and shame over a love "that dare not speak its name.” Melodic Irish-flavored orchestrations, depth, drama, and comedy combine in A Man of No Importance.
