The venue Farkas Hall is preparing to be the host for the fall performance “Bat Boy: The Musical.” The theatre will be welcoming audiences on opening night, November 14, until the last show on November 23.
Farkas Hall is a lively performance art space for Harvard students to grow and perform. Through funding from Andrew Farkas, Harvard Alumnus ’82, the theatre went through a major renovation and expansion. What once was a deteriorated 1888 structure was restored and turned into an inspiring and vibrant place for students to learn. The building was under construction from 2005 to 2007. Farkas Hall is now a 270-seat theater equipped with advanced lighting and sound systems.
“Bat Boy: The Musical” is an American Musical with a book by Keythe Farley and Brian Flemming. The music and lyrics are by Harvard alumnus, Laurence O’Keefe. Ally Kiley is directing the performance. The musical is about a young man who is half bat and half human. After numerous deaths in the boy’s hometown, neighbors begin to question him. The musical is mysterious, yet heartwarming and all intertwined with a big family secret.
The full ticket price is $12.00. Students, seniors (65+) and people with Harvard IDs can purchase tickets for $8.00. The shows begin at 7:30pm on Thursdays with repeat performances through Sundays, except one performance on November 23, which begins at 2:30pm.
