    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.

    Wilsen, Henry Jamison

    Thu., July 27, 8:30 p.m.

    Wilsen front woman Tamsin Wilson is a self-proclaimed night owl. The British-born, Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter penned songs from her latest album, I Go Missing in My Sleep, in the dead stillness of predawn. You can hear this tranquil yet anticipatory verve on each track. While placid acoustic guitar anchors her songwriting, it doesn’t take long for it to wander away from the campfire and into the dark of night. Atmospheric accents, such as fluttery samples, peripheral synth pads and reverb-drenched percussion, elevate her folksy proclivities into a free-associative dream state. Catch Wilsen on Thursday, July 27, at the Higher Ground Showcase Lounge in South Burlington. Local singer-songwriter Henry Jamison opens. at Higher Ground Showcase Lounge in South Burlington.
