Inspired by a 1992 tabloid headline of a half-bat / half-boy discovered in a cave, "Bat Boy: the Musical" is the story of an outsider, dubbed "Edgar" by his would-be protectors. This wild child is taken in by the people of a small town and in spite of his efforts to civilize himself, Edgar is regarded with suspicion and hounded for his strange appearance. He soon realizes that civilization is not all that "civilized".

Then, when the shocking story of his unholy origin comes to light, a fateful reckoning ensues. This offbeat "comedy/horror rock musical" is a funny and poignant look at how we treat others based on assumptions.

Admission is $10.00 for adults, $6.00 for Radford University faculty & staff, seniors are $6.00 and Radford University students with ID are free.

Tickets can be purchased online at: or by calling the box office at 540-831-5289.
