The Next Chapter Actors Present


Premiering for the first time in the Fox Cities Area as well as being the first show performed by The Next Chapter Actors, travel back in time and gear up for the heartfelt story between two opposite strangers and the impact that one cruel joke and a few hours together have on each other.

Set on November 21, 1963, Dogfight centers around Eddie Birdlace and his Marine comrades who are enduring one last night of debauchery before their departure to the growing conflict in Southeast Asia (Vietnam War). They decide to throw a traditional party known as the "dogfight" which requires each Marine to bring the ugliest date they can find. The rules state, "the Marine with the ugliest date, wins the pot of cash." Amidst their search through the streets of San Francisco, Eddie meets a young and idealistic waitress, Rose Fenny, at a local diner and persuades her into being his date to the party. Unaware of whats to come, she excitedly agrees and searches for the perfect dress to wear, but when she finds out the true meaning behind the party later on, she decides to show Eddie the true meaning of love and compassion when he returns to her home to apologize.
