Dawn’s Early Light, a new musical

Notre Dame Film, Television, and Theatre presents


A new musical
By Solomon Duane ’24
Directed by Matt Hawkins

Set in the 1940s amid the flashing colors of the World War II home front and the swinging sounds of the Big Band era, Dawn’s Early Light follows the story of an Italian-American family living in Buffalo, New York. When Tommy Zucchiatti decides to enlist in the military, his immigrant father resists, haunted by the pains of a dark past. How much must the family sacrifice to hold on to their American Dream?
