Based on an article that appeared in The Weekly World News tabloid, Bat Boy: The Musical is a comedy/horror show about a half-boy, half-bat creature discovered in a cave and brought to live with the town veterinarian’s family. Bat Boy is happy with his new life, but when he naively tries to fit in with the narrow-minded townsfolk, they turn on him. Bat Boy and the veterinarian’s daughter fall in love—but their happiness is shattered when a secret is revealed. Soon, the entire town hears the shocking story of Bat Boy’s unholy origin.
This will be the sixth year Arts After Hours has successfully tapped into Salem’s October economy. “We’ve proved that Lynn can benefit from Salem’s immense Halloween tourism,” says Corey Jackson, managing director of Arts After Hours. “Our core mission is to make an economic impact in downtown Lynn, and presenting an intriguing reason to visit our city in October is a key element of that overall strategy.”

Directed by James Tallach, choreographed by Lauren Hall, and music directed by Shane Stecher, Arts After Hours’ production will feature a live band and a talented cast and crew to bring a high-quality theatrical experience into the heart of downtown Lynn.
