The Mineola Twins

by Paula Vogel


A comedy in six scenes, four dreams and seven wigs.  Paula Vogel’s The Mineola Twins is a satirical and entertaining story following the lives of twin sisters and spanning over thirty years.  Myrna, the good sister, is wholesome and virtuous, set in her conservative ways.  Myra, the bad sister, is exactly the opposite- rebellious and much too liberal for her time.  Vogel takes the reader on a journey following the lives of the twins, their romantic partners and, later, their children.

Bat Boy: The Musical

story and book by Keythe Farley and Brian Flemming,

music and lyrics by Laurence O'Keefe


Based on a story in The Weekly World News, BAT BOY: THE MUSICAL is a musical comedy/horror show about a half boy/half bat creature who is discovered in a cave near Hope Falls, West Virginia. For lack of a better solution, the local sheriff brings Bat Boy to the home of the town veterinarian, Dr. Parker, where he is eventually accepted as a member of the family and taught to act like a "normal" boy by the veterinarian's wife, Meredith, and teenage daughter, Shelley. Bat Boy is happy with his new life, but when he naively tries to fit in with the narrow-minded people of Hope Falls, they turn on him, prodded by the machinations of Dr. Parker, who secretly despises Bat Boy. Shelley and Bat Boy, who have fallen in love, run away together from the ignorant townfolk and have a blissful coupling in the woods, but their happiness is shattered when Meredith arrives and reveals a secret. Soon the entire town arrives and hears the shocking story of Bat Boy's unholy origin.
