Dear Arts Patrons,

Welcome to this 2023–24 performing arts season production. The quality programming you are about to enjoy, and in which the university community takes so much pride, would be impossible without our friends, benefactors, and audience members. We are very pleased to have you join us.

This season is an expanded and eclectic mix of music, drama, music theatre, and stand-up comedy performed by outstanding artists ranging from nationally known acts to Viterbo students. The carefully crafted schedule reflects our dedication to upholding the legacy of the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration and their goal of sharing the wonder of the arts with everyone in the region.

To all Viterbo arts patrons, benefactors, sponsors, volunteers, artists, and students, thank you very much for your continued support.

Enjoy the show!

Conservatory Note
Rick Walters headshot

Welcome to the Viterbo University Conservatory for the Performing Arts. We’re so glad you’ve joined in this shared experience of live theatre and music. There’s nothing else quite like it.

This season promises a tapestry of emotions, stories, and melodies, from the enchanting glamour of 42nd Street to the quirky brilliance of Bat Boy: The Musical, and the soul-stirring magic of Godspell.

We’re pleased to bring you new works from some of the most current voices in American theatre. In She Kills Monsters, Obie-award-winner Qui Nguyen offers up a genre-bending “Dungeons and Dragons” romp that can make you laugh even when you’re not supposed to. Tar Beach by Tammy Ryan drops us into 1977 on a New York City rooftop where an overstressed electrical grid leads to a city-wide blackout and the loss of innocence.

Feel the warmth of the holidays with the music of A Viterbo Christmas: The Holly and The Ivy, blending timeless carols and modern classics to launch the season. And in February, mark your calendars for the jazz-inspired romantic short opera, Later That Same Evening.

Thank you for joining us on this artistic journey as we explore new worlds, challenge perspectives, and create memories that last long after the final curtain.

Director's Note
Teddy Eck headshot

I first became aware of “Bat Boy” himself thanks to being bored standing the long lines in the grocery stores back in ’92. Back before self-checkout, before online print media, and before any smartphones or fidgets were there to keep you entertained, there were tabloids and other impulse buys awaiting you alongside the aisles in the grocery store. The Weekly World News first premiered their tabloid of Bat child found in a cave! in 1992, and then ran many similar stories tracking this “Bat Child” and their adventures; Bat Boy escapes the authorities and Bat Boy sighted in NYC subway, etc. According to Weekly World News, the stories about Bat Boy became quite popular, second only to their Elvis Lives story line. To me, I didn’t care if Elvis was living or was an Alien, it was the Bat Child that drew my eye. Flash forward almost a decade, to 2001 when I was in undergrad in NYC, a group of my classmates and I got student rush tickets to see this hip new off-Broadway show, Bat Boy: The Musical. From the opening chord I was hooked. It’s dark, gritty, funny, and entertaining. Bat Boy: The Musical, comes from Tim Robbin’s Los Angeles based Actors’ Gang Theatre which developed the work in 1997. It made its Off-Broadway run in 2001 and has since had a strong mounting in regional theatres and overseas.

With our production, the set designer Teena Sauvola and I worked with the original design concept of the newspaper itself. We explored the design idea of the monochromatic newspaper world and then played with the use of color within it. For example, you’ll see the costumes of the Townsfolk getting more and more colorful as they grow in their embrace of Bat Boy, ala the ’98 movie Pleasantville, that explores similar themes about acceptance in a small-town community. In addition, we sought to explore the relationship between the audience and the cast, which lead to the Blood Zone area as a way to include the audience in Bat Boy’s journey and torment with his thirst for blood. It has been a joy bringing this story to life and sharing this adventure with the stellar production team, cast, and crew. I hope you enjoy your experience with the show and, to quote the lyrics from the show, that you “Know your Bat Boy, Love your Bat Boy, Don’t Deny Your Beast Inside!”
