Prepare for a remarkable musical experience as two of our talented artists, Jordan Luke Gage and Victoria Hamilton-Barritt, take center stage in BAT BOY: THE MUSICAL at the iconic London Palladium for one night only this Halloween.
BAT BOY: THE MUSICAL, inspired by a story in The Weekly World News, masterfully blends comedy and horror. The story revolves around Edgar, a half-boy, half-bat creature discovered in a cave near Hope Falls, West Virginia. When the local sheriff brings Bat Boy to the town veterinarian, Dr. Parker, the creature becomes part of the Parker family. As he adapts to a "normal" life, a deep connection blossoms between Bat Boy and Dr. Parker's daughter, Shelley.
However, their idyllic life takes a dark turn when Bat Boy's attempts to fit into the close-minded community of Hope Falls result in prejudice and hidden agendas. Shelley and Bat Boy's love story prompts them to flee the town, seeking refuge in the woods. But their newfound happiness is short-lived as dark secrets come to light, forever altering their lives.
In this Halloween concert, Jordan Luke Gage delivers a transformative performance as Bat Boy, showcasing a side audiences have never seen before. He is joined by the incredibly talented two-time Olivier Award nominee Victoria Hamilton-Barritt, who portrays Meredith, Dr. Parker's wife.
This rock horror musical, featuring music and lyrics by Laurence O’Keefe, originally premiered on Halloween in 1997. Since then, it has garnered a devoted following with award-winning off-Broadway and West End runs and an addictive soundtrack—not to be missed!
