(218) 336-1416 • Visit Website

Renegade Theater Company proudly announces the regional premiere of "Dogfight," a new musical by Oscar and Tony Award winning composers Pasek and Paul (La La Land, Dear Evan Hansen). Studded with impressive songs, an unexpected love affair and a genuine and charming soul. 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 whom 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. Tickets are $20 for adults / $17 for students and seniors / $10 tickets at the door every Thursday for all students, seniors and artists. Held at 222 East Superior Street.
