After four months, tears and one bat-boy, the final musical in the Blackbox has come to a close.

Bat Boy: The Musical, which took place on Nov. 9 to 11, was especially emotional for the seniors, as it was their last chance to perform, sing and contribute to an Archer musical.

Seniors Gemma Brand-Wolf and Noa Diamond served as assistant directors of the show. Fellow seniors Dani Beauregard, Omari Benjamin, Sophie Evans-Katz, Sara Friedman and Julianna Goldsmith acted in the show. Sydney Shintani, Esther Dafoe and Marlena Lerner, the senior crew members, did the final lighting, sound and sets for musical.

Bat Boy is about what it’s like to find yourself — something that I know all of us seniors are trying to do as we prepare to leave Archer,” Brand-Wolf said in an email interview. “I am so grateful to have been a part of Bat Boy and Archer theater in general. While I’m sad that this was the last [musical] in the Blackbox, I think this was a fitting way to say goodbye to a space that has shaped so many students over the years.”
