What's Great in Dayton: October 20 - 26, 2017

Oct 20, 2017

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.

The Dayton Philharmonic continues its much-loved spooky tradition. Be sure to come early because there are activities and treats for the whole family to enjoy. Who knew being spooky could be so enchanting? Grab seats for the whole family! Saturday, 3pm, Schuster Center.

Aullwood's GLOW: Nature at Night returns this weekend

GLOW: Nature at Night is back for tonight & Saturday, from 6:30 to 9:30pm! Experience Aullwood Farm lit up with glowing lights, adorn yourself with unique glow items like hats, rings, necklaces and fingernail polish, or have fun brandishing your glow-in-the-dark sword.

In the Out of the Darkness Walks, you join the effort with hundreds of thousands of people to raise awareness and funds for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.  They do a lot including supporting survivors of suicide loss. This walk is on Sunday at the Oakwood High School, 1pm is registration; 2pm the walk.

An award-winning documentary, Left On Pearl, is about a significant but little-known chapter in the history of the Women's Liberation Movement. It happened on March 6, 1971  when a group seized a university building at Harvard University and declared it a Women's Center. Hundreds of women, veterans of the antiwar, and civil rights movements (among them some of the earliest out lesbian rights activists) participated in this effective action. The film is at the Neon on Sunday, 3pm.

Gotta go….
