  • About the event

    Dare to Defy Productions presents the regional premiere of Dogfight the Musical. A young soldier learns the power of compassion when he plays a cruel joke on an unsuspecting girl.The hauntingly beautiful musical Dogfight by Pasek and Paul (The Academy Award winning songwriting team behind La La Land, and the current Broadway sucess Dear Evan Hansen) and Peter Duchan, was praised by countless critics and nominated for numerous awards and won the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical. Based on the 1991 Warner Brothers film, Dogfight takes audiences on a romantic and heartbreaking theatrical journey that stays with you long after the performance. It's November 21, 1963. On the eve of their deployment to a small but growing conflict in Southeast Asia, three young Marines set out for one final boys' night of debauchery, partying and maybe a little trouble. But when Corporal Eddie Birdlace meets Rose, an awkward and idealistic waitress he enlists to win a cruel bet with his fellow recruits, she rewrites the rules of the game and teaches him the power of love and compassion. Studded with impressive songs, an unexpected love affair, and a genuine and charming soul, Dogfight is a perfect musical to entertain and challenge audiences.

    Why should you sponsor?

    Dare to Defy Productions is a professional theater company that has been providing quality entertainment to the Dayton, Ohio community for four years. It utilizes local actors, singers, and dancers, to showcase the talent and diversity of the Dayton community. Sponsoring this event will support local artists and bring attention to your business within our loyal fanbase in the Dayton community. Dogfight the Musical is being produced at the beautiful Mathile Theatre in the Schuster Performing Arts Center, where our last production, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, played a sold out run. This, combined with increased interest in the material due to the writers’ Academy Award win, leads us to foresee another hugely successful run. This means that if you sponsor this event, your business could be exposed to nine hundred audience memebers, and our thousands of social media followers. We thank you for considering sposoring our event, and we hope you can help us support local artists, and we can support your buisness.
