Bat Boy: The Musical

Underground Productions presents ‘Bat Boy: The Musical’
Book by Keythe Farley and Brian Flemming
Music and lyrics by Laurence O’Keefe

Director: Alex Feifers
Musical Director: Nick Hollamby
Choreographer: Bonnie Mullins

Underground Productions couldn’t be more proud and excited to present the Queensland premiere of Bat Boy: The Musical, running from August 29 until September 7. From the writer of the recent hit Legally Blonde: The MusicalBat Boy is the hilariously dark tale of a half-boy, half-bat discovered living in a cave and the obstacles he faces as he tries to integrate into a small, rural town in West Virginia.  

It's an explosively entertaining take on how we fear the strange and unknown, set against a score that mixes rock with contemporary musical theatre.  With elements of satire, comedy-horror, irony and forbidden love, Bat Boy is a thought-provoking and thoroughly entertaining work that has garnered massive critical and public acclaim, including the Outer Critics Circle Award for best off-Broadway musical in 2001.

Matilda Award nominee Alex Feifers jumped at the opportunity to direct this exciting yet challenging show. “The real challenge is perfectly balancing the dark and dramatic themes with the comedic irony and wit,” she says. “But backed by such a strong creative team and crew, not to mention the stellar cast, I have a big feeling this is going to be the highlight of the local Brisbane musical theatre scene this year.”
