Senior Intensive: Bat Boy: The Musical
Grades 9-12

Director:  Genevieve Bennett

Inspired by the cover of The Weekly World News, Bat Boy is the story of Edgar, a feral half boy half bat discovered in a cave in rural West Virginia. Taken in by the wife of the local veterinarian, Edgar quickly learns language, manners, and the love of a mother. But this new found happiness is rocked by a jealous husband, a forbidden romance, and a town eager to blame their problems on someone different.

Senior Intensive provides students with demanding material that seeks to challenge them as artists, educate them in a professional setting, and inspire them to be active voices in their community.
