Dramatic Productions presents

27 Jan 2023 to 4 Feb 2023


Dogfight is a hauntingly beautiful musical adapted from the 1991 Warner Brothers film of the same name starring River Phoenix and Lili Taylor.

With music and lyrics by award winning writers Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (Dear Evan Hansen, The Greatest Showman, La La Land) the show is both riveting and moving.

The story follows U.S. Marine Eddie Birdlace as he has one last night out on the town with his buddies before being shipped off to Vietnam. The boys paint the town red but in the middle of an unsavory bet to see who brings the ugliest date to a party, known as the Dogfight, Eddie learns that bravado and youthful vigour is no replacement for decency and compassion.  



As part of Dramatic Productions Dramatic Difference Program, each show (with the exception of Opening and Closing Nights) will be dedicated to one of seven local charities.

10% of each ticket purchase to each charity as per their dedicated session. 

Saturday 28th January 2pm - Soldier On

Saturday 28th January 8pm - Dainere's Rainbow

Sunday 29th January 2pm - Hands Across Canberra

Wednesday 1st February 8pm - Majors Creek Wombat Rescue

Thursday 2nd February 8pm - Home in Queanbeyan

Friday 3rd February 8pm - Newborn Intensive Care Foundation

If you are able and would like to gift the joy of theatre to those who would otherwise not be able to attend, please consider purchasing another reduced price ‘Pay It Forward’ ticket upon check out. These tickets will then be made available to the charities above to provide to their clients and volunteers.
