DAYTON, OH (September 6, 2017) – The Dayton Performing Arts Alliance is pleased to continue its highly successful Military Appreciation Program for active-duty military members, retired veterans with ID cards, and WPAFB government civilian employees in the Miami Valley area by offering two pairs of free tickets per military household to be chosen from a variety of performances from the 2017-2018 The Great Ones Season, with one pair to be used between September and December 2017 and one pair to be used between January and June 2018. Military personnel may choose from 52 different 2017-2018 The Great Ones Season performances listed below. Sponsored by Booz Allen Hamilton, the program has dedicated a total of 4,800 complimentary tickets to performances of the Dayton Ballet, Dayton Opera and Dayton Philharmonic. For more information, go to www.daytonperformingarts.org/military.

“This is our way of thanking our military personnel and their families for their continued service to our great country,” said DPAA President and CEO Paul Helfrich. “It’s also a great opportunity for military members and veterans who may not be familiar with Dayton’s wonderful performing arts.”

“Booz Allen is a proud presenting sponsor of the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance’s Military Appreciation Program,” said Rick Holley, Senior Vice President, Booz Allen Hamilton. “Our support of this program, that offers active duty military members, families, and veterans complimentary tickets to selected DPAA performances, is in keeping with the firm’s commitment to help organizations and community initiatives that benefit our nation’s active-duty military and veterans.”
