Jeff Leatherwood as Bat Boy in Bat Boy The Musical at Warner Grand Theatre in San Pedro, CA

The Relevant Stage opens its doors for the 2nd musical in its 1st season with "Bat Boy The Musical". Originally produced 'Off Broadway', this side-splitting spoof is based on a 1992 story in the tabloid Weekly World News about a half-bat/half- boy found living in a cave. He is taken in by a family who attempts to instill "human values" in him. The story follows his interaction with them and
various townspeople.

With music and lyrics by Laurence O'Keefe and story by Keythe Farley and Brian Flemming, "Bat Boy The Musical" has been produced in London's West End, the Edinburgh Festival and around the globe. Its regional productions have won dozens of awards. Named an "instant classic" by the New York Post and, and a "giggling cult hit" by The New Yorker", the show promises an evening of genuine entertainment.

Burbank actor, Jeff Leatherwood portrays Bat Boy. Jeff was most recently seen as Matthew in the award winning musical comedy, Altar Boyz. Previous to that he was rockin’ arenas across the U.S. as the lead male singer in The Kidz Bop World Tour. Erstwhile credits include: Baby (Danny), South Pacific (Lt. Cable), Jesus Christ Superstar (Simon), West Side Story (Tony), Cabaret (Cliff), and The Diviners (Dewey Maples, at the Kennedy Center).

The production features a talented cast of 10 directed by Lucas Pakes, with choreography by Dylan Balderrama and musical direction by Chip Colvin. The producing director of The Relevant Stage is Ray Buffer.

Based at the magnificent Warner Grand Theatre in San Pedro, The Relevant Stage production will run on Thursdays October 9 and 16, Fridays October 10 and 17 and Saturday October 11 and 18 at 8PM; and Sundays October 12 and 19 at 2:30pm. A private showing for Junior and High School students is planned for Friday, October 10 at 1:00pm.

For Thursday, Friday and Saturday performances, a "Blood Red" wine tasting is offered 1/2 hour prior to curtain at Off The Vine, on 6th Street, directly across from the theatre. A pre-purchased wine/theatre package is available for only $25 and may be purchased online at, or through Off The Vine at 310-831-1551.

Regular tickets for "Bat Boy: The Musical" are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors age 55 plus and current college students, and $5 for 18 and under. They are available online at or at local San Pedro businesses: William's Book Store, Sacred Grounds, The Corner Store and Findings Art Center.
