Dogfight by Pasek and Paul
March 16-19

a Semper Fi Collective in association with Renegade Arts Company Production

The Pasek and Paul musical is returning to Vancouver for only Five performances at Pacific Theatre from March 16-19.

The hauntingly beautiful musical Dogfight by Pasek and Paul (Edges, James And The Giant Peach, A Christmas Story) 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.


This new production is also directed by Chris Lam (Jessie nominee and Ovation winner), musically directed by Peter Abando (Off Key Musical Improv) set design by Carolyn Rapanos (Common Grace), lighting design by Jonathan Kim (The Amish Project).
