no all we really need is fangs and pointy ears, so it shoudlnt be that hard, but he will need some wierd costume, because u wouldnt expect to see a half man half bat in jeans and a t shirt. w/e

Black ducttape over some old jeans and a T-Shirt!!! It will eather give the shiny suit look or put a few pieces sticky side out and leave it a few days in a cast member's house who has a black dog! (ok, well mabye that part wouldnt be the best idea, but the shiny side out would probably work)

Let me just say, Bat Boy is one of my favorate musicals, and i have been both the Lighing Designer, and played Dr. Parker.

That said, here are my thoughts on the show:

It is meant to be as minimalistic as possable. The most set you should have on stage is (for the parker's house), a small table with chairs, a couch, and the cage.

The costumes also can be very limited. Indeed, Edgar (Bat Boy) is always played in a white wife beater and jeans, with fangs and fake ears and in the begining his skin is bright white.

Sorry, that was me, but i guess i wasnt logged in.

Lighting wise, the show can work with anywhere from a handful of parcans and fresnels, to a full grid of source 4s, scrollers, and dataflashes.
