Fall Semester

Bat Boy

in Concert

Bat Boy 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.

Start Date: Sunday September 17, 2023
Final Class: Sunday December 10, 2023
Class Time: Sundays 6pm-9pm
Performances: November 3 – 4, 2023 (2 Performances)

Spring Semester

MEAN GIRLS

HIGH SCHOOL EDITION

Mean Girls, the brutally hilarious musical from book writer Tina Fey (30 Rock), lyricist Nell Benjamin (Legally Blonde) and composer Jeff Richmond (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt). This queen bee took Broadway by storm and has joined the musical in-crowd. Adapted from Fey’s hit 2004 film, Mean Girls was nominated for a staggering 12 Tony Awards. Cady Heron may have grown up on an African savanna, but nothing prepared her for the wild and vicious ways of her strange new home: suburban Illinois. How will this naïve newbie rise to the top of the popularity pecking order? By taking on The Plastics, a trio of lionized frenemies led by the charming but ruthless Regina George. But when Cady devises a plan to end Regina’s reign, she learns the hard way that you can’t cross a queen bee without getting stung.
