"I want to know my neighbors, I'm not some garden gnome, why can't I make this world my home"
BAT BOY When the capture of a live bat-child made headlines in the Weekly World News, the cover story skyrocketed the popularity of that edition (second only to the infamous “Elvis is Alive!” issue), making tabloid history! Based on actual events as reported in the Weekly World News, Bat Boy The Musical begins when this bat-child is discovered in a cave in the West Virginia Hills by a few adventure-seeking teenagers. Bat Boy’s arrival rouses and transforms the sleepy southern community of Hope Falls, West Virginia as he attempts to make this quiet mountain town his home.
