Curtain rises at 8 p.m. for three nights of the musical 'Bat Boy'

After three months of rehearsal, the Penn State New Kensington student cast members of "Bat Boy" have learned their lines, developed a stage presence and perfected the timing, so when the curtain goes up at 8 p.m. Thursday, April 18, in the Forum Theatre, they will be ready. The Penn State Players are in fine voice and excited to open the three-day run of the musical production at the campus.

Directed by Bill Mitas, instructor in theater arts, the show stars Chris Capo as Edgar, the bat boy, and Emily Urbaniak as Meredith Parker, the foster mother who takes the bat boy into her home. Tickets are $8 for students and $12 for the general public, and are available by calling 724-334-6062.
