There are so many different types of performances that Dayton Live loves to bring to Dayton audiences – and many of them don’t fit neatly into our Broadway, Family, Nat Geo Live or Vic150 Music Series. We like to call them Star Attractions. Ranging from one-week runs to single-evening events, Dayton Live’s Projects Unlimited Star Attractions appeal to a variety of different audiences and are guaranteed to provide you with the finest entertainment in Dayton! Starting later this summer, you can make your own Season Ticket package by selecting four or more shows that most appeal to you – and you can even mix in Broadway, Music, Family or Nat Geo Live titles (restrictions on show availability may apply).

AN EVENING WITH C.S. LEWIS – starring David Payne – is a captivating evening in 1963 where C.S. Lewis hosts a group of American writers at his home near Oxford. Throughout the evening he recalls the people and events that inspired his thought and shaped his life; his friendship with J.R.R. Tolkien; why he nearly abandoned the Narnia Chronicles; how he came to embrace Christianity and the American woman who turned his life upside down.
STOMP is explosive, provocative, sophisticated, sexy, utterly unique and appeals to audiences of all ages. The international percussion sensation has garnered an armful of awards and rave reviews, and has appeared on numerous national television shows. The eight-member troupe uses everything but conventional percussion instruments – matchboxes, wooden poles, brooms, garbage cans, Zippo lighters, hubcaps – to fill the stage with magnificent rhythms.
Get set for an evening of cheesecake, laughter, Jazzercise, shoulder pads, sex, and the elegant art of the quick-witted putdown. Devoted fans will fondly remember our four girls from Miami, and for the first-timers, this will be a joyful introduction to the brilliance of that television series.
