The Boulder Broadway Company
(Located at the Lakewood Cultural Center) is currently producing BAT BOY THE MUSICAL. Written by Keythe Farley and Brian Flemming with music and lyrics by Laurence O’Keffe, BAT BOY THE MUSICAL is the juicy grocery store tabloid story that has found its way off the page and onto the stage, with hilariously gruesome results.
“Ripped from the headlines of The Weekly World News, BAT BOY THE MUSICAL is a classic love story with a serious bite. This delicious twist on the modern day musical comedy tells the amazing story of a strange boy with pointy ears, his struggle to find a place in a world that shuns him, and the love that can create both miracles and madness.” www.batboy.co.uk
