Theater in Dayton

March 24, 2011

Winter in Dayton has never been a time to stay at home. The thriving theater venues in town are a great place to escape the winter blues and enjoy first-rate performing arts. Dayton is fortunate to have a strong tradition of support for the arts. For instance, many of the city’s suburbs and small towns across the Miami Valley have active community theaters. Moreover, venues such as the Victoria Theater and Memorial Hall attract talent from around the world.  Below is a gallery of performance venues and theater groups from across the Miami Valley.  All images were found in the DDN collection. Please click on the thumbnail image to enlarge it.
