Premiered in New York’s Off-Broadway in 2012, "Dogfight" is a bittersweet love story and a Cinderella gone-wrong tale set in San Francisco on November 21, 1963 – the day before the United States experienced a cataclysmic tragedy that would alter the country’s course forever. The action begins as a young US Marine returns from duty in Vietnam and remembers the young woman he met in 1963 before deploying with his buddies to the war.

Benj Pasek and Justin Paul were, of course, the musical brains behind the smash-hit film "The Greatest Showman" and the stage smash-hit "Dear Evan Hansen".  With Justin Hurwitz, they also co-wrote the Oscar-winning song “City of Stars” from "LaLa Land".

DeeDee Doke will direct "Dogfight". She is looking for:

  • A musical director who enjoys a variety of contemporary music styles + musicians (drums, keyboard, guitar and violin, if available)

  • An imaginative choreographer

  • A cast of 13 people including six women and seven men – all over 16 -- who will fall as much in love with the story and the music as DeeDee!

  • Stage techs.

Please view the Dogfight information below for the synopsis, roles and basic information (which includes the audition details).
