Downtown Dayton Partnership

Scarves. Hats. Jackets. Porters and stouts. Yes, fall has arrived in downtown Dayton, and First Friday is the perfect time to enjoy all the sights and sounds. Art galleries, boutique retailers, performance halls, bars, restaurants, and many more locations will host special activities tonight. 

Bat Boy: The Musical was inspired by a series of tabloid headlines claiming that a terrifying creature, half-man and half-bat, had been discovered in a cave, escaped, and was being pursued by government officials. This deals with serious themes such as hypocrisy, acceptance, forgiveness, but often punctures the most serious moments with slapstick, surrealism, camp-horror, and irony. It is tonight and Saturday at the Schuster.

There is a play now through Sunday at the Schuster Center, Mathile Theatre. It is titled TAPE and is about a guy on the verge of hitting it big who hooks up for the weekend with his best friend from high school who makes his money selling dope. Beneath its suspenseful, high-stakes surface, TAPE examines questions of motive, memory, truth and perception.

Are You A Singer In The Shower? Connect with fellow Dayton singers at Bach Society's Sing Dayton! Newcomers, shower singers, and choral ninjas are all welcome. If you love to sing but don't have time to join a choir, then this could be for you! This is tonight, 6-9PM at Yellow Cab Tavern.

The annual Artistry in Wood Show & Sale is Saturday and Sunday at the Roberts Centre in Wilmington. Many of the top woodworkers in the country will be at this event!
