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.
