A One Night Stand

hgHave you checked out Dayton Theatre Guild in it’s new Oregon District location?   From the authors of Dearly Beloved and Christmas Belles, The Hallelujah Girls will be live on stage  through Dec 13th

Hilarity abounds when the REAL HOUSEWIVES of Eden Falls, Georgia decide to shake up their lives. This rollicking Southern comedy takes place in SPA-DEE-DAH!, the abandoned church-turned day spa where Sugar Lee, Carlene, Nita, Mavis and Crystal gather every Friday afternoon. After the loss of a dear friend, the women realize time is precious and if they’re going to change their lives and achieve their dreams they have to get on it now! And do they ever!

Dayton Music Fest

8 clubs, 32 bands, $10. In and around the Oregon District on Sat, Oct 3rd, Go to daytonmusicfest.com for details.

Dayton Music Fest (DMF) started because we felt that there was a lack of focus on the Dayton Indie Rock scene. We have some great music coming out of our fair city and we thought that we should get the word out to more than just the 18-21 crowd that already knew.

We make no claims of being all inclusive or of being the last word on who you should listen to. What we are trying to do and have always tried to do is open some doors to some clubs that bands like these might not have played before, put the bands in front of crowds that might not have ever seen them before, and have the bands be a part of something bigger than the sum of its parts.

This is truly a labor of love. We want nothing more than to make Dayton a destination for people who want to see the great music this town has to offer. We start working on the fest in January and don’t stop until the show is over.

Thank you for supporting the music scene and for supporting DMF.



A polished neighborhood troupe performs Shakespeare’s romantic comedy in a beautiful outdoor setting.

DAYTON, OHIO— Fairies and Athenians are enjoying the late summer weather in South Park Green, a cozy hillside park with an impressive vista of the Dayton skyline at dusk. These Shakespearean characters are diligently rehearsing A Midsummer Night’s Dream, opening Friday, September 18 at 8PM. The play is sponsored by Historic South Park. Last year they staged Much Ado About Nothing.

The delightful romantic comedy of mismatched lovers, enchanted forests and Puck, the famously mischievous sprite, will play out against the natural background of lush trees strung with twinkling lights at sunset, a perfect stage for the magic-comic misadventures of the king and queen of the fairies, human lovers and bumbling rustic folk.
