    ADD Bat Boy

    Post  hanarudolph on Wed Mar 10, 2010 7:57 am

    Q. How many people can boast a dedication to the extent of shaving one’s head?
    A. Drew McDaniels, of Advanced Drama Department (ADD), for one.

    ADD’s latest production is scheduled to rock it, in the literal sense of course, with Bat Boy: the Musical, coming Mar. 30 to Apr. __ in the Little Theater. The musical, projected to cost over $10,000, is highly anticipated to be bigger and better than ever. (Remember Little Shop of Horrors, anyone?) After all, who could ask more than an elaborate set, an amazing director and choreographer, some ridiculous costumes, professional lighting, and, most of all, a stunning cast?
    Some of the main cast will include Stevie Gibbs, Virginia Ma, and Chris McKinley, starring Drew McDaniels as Bat Boy himself. This group of talented people has rehearsed Mon. to Fri., 3:00 to 6:00 p.m., for weeks, and is sure not to disappoint. But ADD students are not the only stars: this production will also mark the first time Intermediate Dance is involved. Not to mention that audience members will also have the privilege of seeing their favorite teacher on stage… Who wants to see Ms. Diaz eaten? Mr. Wooden, anyone?
    Bat Boy is a musical based on a hoax article the Weekly World Newspaper once published about a half bat, half human creature found alive in a cave. In this stunning musical, this distorted creature is kindly taken in by a hospitable family, but has problems integrating with the rest of the townsfolk: Bat Boy himself does not like killing… but his eating habits are questionable. Dealing with issues such as diversity and acceptance, the musical will be something all high-school students can relate to—the self-identity aspect will definitely “resonate with the students,” said ADD Director Steven Volpe. The musical is guaranteed to be radical and provocative.
    And fun. Let’s not forget that. “Kooky,” was Mr. Volpe’s descriptive adjective. Alternately, “I love this play more than rainbows!” is Chris’s deemed assessment of the production. A basic musical is composed of three elements: acting, singing, and dancing, and all three are fully combined in this extravagant performance. Mr. Volpe, as usual, is covering the theatrical elements of the stage. Orchesis Teacher Ms. Liza Tedford is choreographing. As for music, a live band will be playing behind the backdrops each night… not to mention the professional director that was brought in to assist the thirty-some members of the cast in the many four-part harmonies. The genres of the songs vary from musical theater to rock to rap to gospel—something for everyone.
    But if for nothing else, come see the bald guy. Tickets can be bought pre-sale from any Theater member at $10, or at the door for $15. “Think a mix between Edward Cullen [of Twilight] and Spock from Star Trek with a shaved head,” laughed Drew of his character’s looks. Once again, that’s Mar. 30 to Apr. __. See you there!

It is astounding to say the least!” Peter proudly exclaimed.
