**CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS**
Ages, gender, and doubling of parts are merely suggestions.
 
 
Bat Boy - A half-bat half-human creature often referred to as “Edgar”. Once brought into town, he longs to be accepted and
treated like a human and not like an animal. Male, 16-26. Range: B2-A4 (falsetto to E5) (tenor)
Meredith Parker - Wife to Thomas. She embodies a typical 50’s housewife and will do anything for her children. Female, 30-50. Range: F2 - F4 (mezzo soprano)
Dr. Parker - Often referred to as Doctor Parker. Husband to Meredith. He is the town veterinarian. He has a dark side to him that he hides very well. Suffers from demons that he tries to keep at bay. Male, 30-50. Range: Ab2 - A4 (tenor)
Shelley Parker - Daughter to Dr. Parker and Meredith. She is the typical teenager but does have a more sensitive side to her that she doesn’t let many people see. Female, 16-26. Range: Ab2 - Ab4 (+ raps) (soprano)
 
The Townsfolk/Ensemble:
Sheriff Reynolds - He is the sheriff of Hope Falls, West Virginia. He is well respected in the town but is coming up for reelection and wants to please everyone that he can. Male, 20-60. Range: C#3 - F4 (baritone)
Rick Taylor - One out of three rowdy Taylor kids who finds Bat Boy. Also Shelley’s boyfriend. Drag role. He doubles as Lorraine and Mr. Dillon. Strong acting/singing needed. Male, 16-28. Range: E3 - B4 (+ raps) (tenor)
Ron Taylor - Another rowdy Taylor kid. Drag role. Doubles as Maggie and also Clem. Male, 16-28. Range: C3 – D4 (baritone)

Bud - A rancher. Drag role. Doubles as Daisy. Male, 16-60.
Muses/Pan - The director’s vision has added additional parts to the show. The Greek Muses will tell the story of Bat Boy and will do most of the ensemble work as it is their story to tell. They will directly interact with characters onstage but are only “seen” by the audience. Pan is also included here and has a solo. The Muses require strong dancing and singing ability as their role will be very important in this production. Must be comfortable wearing a leotard and body paint. Pan range: Eb3 - A4 (tenor) or Eb3 - C4 (alto)
 
**FINAL NOTE**
 
This show is going to be a great experience with hilarious doubling, breaking the fourth wall and audience interaction. It is important that those interested in this production are willing to give it their all since it is a high energy show and will require those involved to not be afraid to challenge themselves. Please give it your all at auditions and be ready to let your creative heart and mind come to life!
