‘BAT BOY: THE MUSICAL’ returns to London’s West End with a star-studded concert this Halloween! 🦇

The cult classic BAT BOY: THE MUSICAL will return to London’s West End for a star-studded Halloween concert at the London Palladium on Tuesday 31st October 2023 at 8.00pm.

The concert will star Jordan Luke Gage in the transformational title role, alongside two-time Olivier Award nominee Victoria Hamilton-Barritt, Trevor Dion Nicholas and Jodie Steele.

The rock horror musical with music and lyrics by Laurence O’Keefe (Heathers, Legally Blonde) first premiered on Halloween in 1997. Since then, BAT BOY: THE MUSICAL has garnered a devoted following with its award-winning off-Broadway and West End runs and addictive soundtrack.

Edgar (Gage) is a half boy/half bat creature who is discovered in a cave in a rural American town. The local sheriff brings Bat Boy to the home of the town veterinarian, Dr. Parker (Nicholas), where he is eventually accepted as a member of the family by the veterinarian’s wife, Meredith (Hamilton- Barritt), and teenage daughter, Shelley (Steele). However, resentment and a dreadful secret about his shocking origins threaten to turn the town, and everyone he loves against him.

Set against a backdrop of a small town ravaged by prejudice, the dark comedy explores themes of fear, acceptance and the consequences of othering, questioning what it means to be ‘normal’.

Producers Chris Steward and Shanay Holmes for West End Musical Productions and director Dean Johnson (Once, BKLYN) promise a dark, truthful reimagining of the musical, with more cast and creatives to be announced.

BAT BOY: THE MUSICAL is a new obsession for musical fans to sink their teeth into and a bloody brilliant way to spend Halloween!
