    Wednesdays-Saturdays, 7:30 p.m. Continues through Aug. 5

    While the theatrical work Dogfight has its share of lively musical numbers and a few laughs, it also tackles thought-provoking topics. Set in 1963, the play follows Cpl. Eddie Birdlace and two fellow Marines as they drink and make merry on the eve of their deployment to Southeast Asia. As the youthful carousing continues, Birdlace makes an unexpected connection with a mild-mannered yet idealistic waitress who challenges his worldview. Music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, who nabbed an Academy Award for writing the lyrics to “City of Stars” in La La Land, propel the play’s Vermont premiere, staged by the Stowe Theatre Guild. at Stowe Town Hall Theatre in Stowe. Stowe/Smuggs (map). $18-20.

    Sat., July 29, 6 p.m.

    As the Vermont Shakespeare Festival tells it, “Shakespeare’s Richard III is the tale of a ruthless, power-crazed royal who lies and murders his way to the highest seat in the land.” If that doesn’t grab your attention, it’s difficult to imagine what would. Theater buffs and casual picnickers alike can experience the action and intrigue when VSF serves up a staged reading of the Bard’s historic drama on the Shelburne Museum’s Circus Lawn. Scripts in hand, six actors deliver lines that, while written in the 16th century, still resonate today. Bring a chair and some snacks for this al fresco presentation. at Shelburne Museum in Shelburne. Chittenden County (map). $15-20; free for kids under 12 with a ticketed adult.
