What's Great In Dayton: October 27 - November 2, 2017

Oct 27, 2017

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.

Calling all Halloween lovers! Ready for a "spooktacular time?" Music, street performers, food, drink and a costume contest with cash prizes. This is in the historic Oregon District. Don't miss the fun and laughter-filled evening with a host of street performers, a Spiritual Advisorscary, ghost, ghouls, zombies, freaks, geeks, and more. Saturday, 7pm.

If you love to be moved by inspiring music, this concert may be for you. 60 choral singers and a small orchestra bring you haunting, profoundly beautiful, and exuberant classical music. You won't want to miss it! Concert Preview 3pm; concert 4pm, Sunday, Kettering Seventh Day Adventist Church.

The Dayton Holiday Festival is looking for the area's most creative confectionary decorators for the 12th annual Gingerbread Homes for the Holidays contest. All ages and skill levels are invited. Entry forms are due by November 16.

Each year the hill behind the Greek Orthodox Church in the historic Grafton Hills neighborhood comes alive with Miami Valley's most extreme jack-o'-lantern display. See over 800 intricately carved pumpkins at this event for the whole family! FOOD TRUCKS will be available. For parking go to The Dayton Art Institute, Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church and throughout the Grafton Hill Neighborhood. This is Monday, & Tuesday starting at 8:00 PM.

Gotta go….
