Little Radical Theatrics, Inc. (LRT) will be hosting OPEN AUDITIONS for its Winter 2012 production, the Lucille Lortel and Outer Critics Circle Award-winning "giggling cult hit", BAT BOY: THE MUSICAL!
* Open to all persons 16+ and ethnicities are strongly encouraged to audition. *
"LET HIM WALK AMONG YOU..."
Based on a story ripped straight from The Weekly World News tabloid, BAT BOY: THE MUSICAL is a faux-horror musical comedy about a half boy/half bat creature who is rescued fro m a cave near Hope Falls, West Virginia, and taken in by the empathetic wife of the local veterinarian. “Edgar," as he's named, quickly learns to speak and act in civilized ways as a "normal" boy – even falling in love for the first time. Danger looms, however, when a murderous rampage sweeps Hope Falls, and the town learns of a deep, dark secret, and the shocking story of Bat Boy's unholy origin is revealed. This off-kilter satire, which will reunite the director and choreographer that brought the Westchester Premiere of REEFER MADNESS!, offers clever send-ups to other celebrated musicals, a hilarious book, surprising twists and turns of plot, and a lesson in the agony of being different and accepting your inner beast.
