Military Appreciation Performances

Saluting Active Military and Veterans with Complimentary Ballet, Opera or Philharmonic Tickets


The Dayton Performing Arts Alliance, in partnership with generous supporter Booz Allen Hamilton, presents the Military Appreciation Program for active-duty military members, retired veterans and Wright-Patterson AFB government civilian employees in the Miami Valley. Two performances per season (two sets of two complimentary tickets) are offered to military households over the course of the 2018–2019 Vistas Season—one performance in the 2018 calendar year and one performance in 2019. Additional tickets are available for sale. Ask about military and student discounts.

Performances by Dayton Ballet, Dayton Opera and Dayton Philharmonic are on the schedule.

Tickets are available at Ticket Center Stage, located in the Wintergarden of the Schuster Center at 1 West Second Street (at the corner of Second and North Main Streets in downtown Dayton) or by calling (888) 228-3630 to reserve your tickets.

Box office hours are Monday through Friday, 10 am to 6 pm and Saturday, noon to 4 pm.

One pair of tickets in the 2018 calendar year and one pair in 2019 selected from the listed performance schedule below per military household will be available for pickup in person within 30 days of the performance date. A valid active-duty military, veteran, or government civilian ID must be presented in person.

Inquiries may be made to (888) 228-3630 regarding how many assigned tickets are still left in a given performance for the Military Appreciation Program. A limited number of tickets per performance date will be made available on a first-come, first-served basis.
