A young soldier learns the power of compassion when he plays a cruel joke on an unsuspecting girl.



Keyboard 1


A young soldier learns the power of compassion when he plays a cruel joke on an unsuspecting girl.


This version is based on the Original 2012 Off-Broadway Production.

There is just a single keyboard player in this show and it just has a hand full of patches that are on the Roland Fantom keyboards. If you do not have a Fantom, KeyboardTEK has sampled all of the original sounds from the Off-Broadway production to make this easier for you and your music director. Although not a heavily programmed show, this book does require an advanced musical theater pianist capable of playing complex rhythms in many different keys.

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, winning 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 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.
