Welcome back Fun Filers! This week, it’s all about getting outside and being healthy. But don’t worry, we were sure to throw in some live music, artful entertainment and even some food and brews. Here’s our picks for Fort Wayne’s Fun File this week! Thursday, August 6th  1. Curator’s Tour: Summer of Glass Fort Wayne Museum of Art 311 E. Main St. 12:15 pm – 1:15 pm Tickets: $7 ($5 for college students) and an extra $5 for their special exhibit, Summer of Glass President & CEO and Chief Curator Charles Shepard will take you on a new gallery tour each month. From his specialized, personal point of view. This month’s exhibit: Summer of Glass. Friday, August 7th  2. Fort Wayne Museum of Art’s Summer Party Fort Wayne Museum of Art 311 E. Main St. 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm Tickets: $5 Members and $12 Guests. Four times a year, the FWMoA highlights current exhibits with a party that brings together art lovers of all kinds to eat delicious food from Club Soda, meet friends and enjoy live music. 3. Bat Boy: The Musical Arena Dinner Theatre 719 Rockhill Street Opening night is August 7th Runs on August 8th, 14th, 15th, 21st and 22nd Show Starts at 8:00 pm. Doors open at 6:15 pm. Get tickets or call their box office at 424-5622. Based on a story in The Weekly World News, BAT BOY: THE MUSICAL is a musical comedy/horror show about a half boy/half bat creature who is discovered in a cave near Hope Falls, West Virginia. For lack of a better solution, the local sheriff brings Bat Boy to the home of the town veterinarian, Dr. Parker, where he is eventually accepted as a member of the family and taught to act like a “normal” boy by the veterinarian’s wife, Meredith, and teenage daughter, Shelley. Bat Boy is happy with his new life, but when he naively tries to fit in with the narrow-minded people of Hope Falls, they turn on him. Then all heck breaks loose as Bat Boy, who has fallen in love, runs away and drives us toward the shocking conclusion! 4.
