What's Great in Dayton: October 29 - November 4, 2021
Charlie Campbell's picks for what to do and see this week in the Miami Valley.
The Dream of the Burning Boy is a play at the PNC Arts Annex. This is searing yet surprisingly funny about finding the strength to move on... and the courage to live without regret. It deals with death and grief and is available this weekend.
The Human Race Theatre now has AIRNESS...an air guitar competition. It's a comedy about competition, completion, and finding the “airness” inside yourself. Now through November 7.
Light and Dark is a repertory program of demanding classical ballets and organic modern works. The Dayton Ballet artists are showcased in this beautiful presentation of four distinct ballets that will fill you with a range of moods for the autumn season.
On Sunday afternoon in the downtown Dayton Oregon District is Dia De Muertos (Day of the Dead). It’s a parade, celebration, and other activities all outdoors. Noon to 6pm.
At the Dayton Art Institute you can see some of our beloved artist and illustrator Norman Rockwell. He could tell a complete story and has long been celebrated for his humor and artistic skill. Other artists will help put Rockwell’s work in a broader art-historical context. This is now through February.
We all have heard about The Mustangs....AMERICA'S WILD HORSES. This is so ingrained in the American imagination: fierce, independence, unbridled freedom. From car ads to high school mascots the mustang is the enduring icon of America. But in modern times it has become entangled in controversy and bureaucracy and now its future is in question. This movie is one you can stream anytime....go to neonmovies.com and click on their virtual cinema.
