"Bat Boy, The Musical" (story and book by Keythe Farley and Brian Fleming, music and lyrics by Laurence O'Keefe) chronicles the story of a boy with bat-like ears and needle teeth, who is found in a cave and is later adopted by a human family that tries to teach him the ways of a civilized society. Bat Boy's struggle to be "human" and to be accepted is at the core of this moving and surprisingly hilarious rock musical.
Leading the talented cast is Marvin Ong as Bat Boy, together with Laura Cabochan as his foster mother, Meredith. Direction and choreography by Repertory Philippines veteran Robbie Guevara, musical direction by Laura Cabochan, and lights and sounds design by Voltaire De Jesus.
The musical runs March 7-8 at the Fine Arts Exhibit Hall, Ateneo de Manila University. For details and ticket reservations, call Hannah at 0922-894617.
