Military Appreciation Performances

Are you active military, a retired veteran, or a government civilian employee? Read more about our military discounts here.

Dayton Performing Arts Alliance is pleased to offer its 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 2022‒2023 Season.

The first pair can be used between September and December 2022, and the second pair can be used between January and June 2023. This program is sponsored by Dayton Aerospace, Inc.

There are a limited number of tickets per performance that are available on a first-come, first-served basis. DPAA also offers discounted tickets to all military members—which can be purchased online—so that you can attend performances year-round beyond your complimentary tickets.
