68th Annual Alumni Night at the Musical, 7:30 p.m., $15
BAT BOY: THE MUSICAL is a rock musical comedy/horror show based on a 1992 Weekly World News story about a half-boy, half-bat who grew up living in an isolated cave in the Appalachian Mountains of West Virginia. With a beat-driven rock score that pays homage to the rock musicals of the late '60s and early '70s, Bat Boy provides a compelling theatrical metaphor for the dangers of prejudice, intolerance, and provincialism. Directed by Joe Allen Brown. Rated PG-13.
Afterglow Party, 9:30 p.m., FREE
Come together to close out Alumni Reunion with a rockin’ party – complete with desserts, wine and dancing to the sounds of an awesome Beatles cover band, Abbey RoadTrip! Meet the cast of Bat Boy: The Musical as they join us after the performance.
