Cornerstone kicks off season with DOGFIGHT

Cornerstone kicks off its 2019 musical season with Dogfight. On November 21, 1963, a group of young marines is gathered in San Francisco the night before they ship off to Vietnam. They decide to celebrate their last night of freedom with a cruel game they call a “dogfight” where every man sets out to find the ugliest girl he can and brings her to a party. Everyone puts in money, and the man with the ugliest date wins the pot. One of the young men taking part is Eddie Birdlace, who is running out of time to find a date when he meets idealistic waitress Rose Fenny in a diner. He invites her to the party—her very first party—and she accepts. She leaves angrily when she finds out about the bet and Eddie, feeling bad, comes to find her. After an inauspicious beginning, an awkward love story begins to unfold. Performance dates are April 26 thru May 5 with Friday and Saturday shows beginning at 7:30PM and Sunday matinees beginning at 2PM. All tickets are reserved seating at $24.50 in advance and $26.50 at the door. Purchase tickets at the Cornerstone Playhouse Facebook page or go to
