Check out this performance in New Ulm. Patrick Dewane’s ancestors were from the same region as many of our members and his grandfathers WWII experiences ended the war in our ancestral homelands.
Hoping to get Patrick to do a live performance at one of our meetings.
Here is the information from the State Street Theatre’s web site:
The Grand Center for Arts & Culture and State Street Theater present “Christmas 1944” on Friday, December 7, 7:30 p.m., featuring Patrick Dewane in a multi-media one-man show.
Based on actual events, it is about a WWII American officer who miraculously liberates the Czech villages of his grandparents. Dewayne brings this archival material to glowing life as an enthralling, humorous and heartwarming tale of miraculous escapes and astonishing coincidences. This touching show runs from belly laughs to tears. Dewane takes on a dozen different roles as he powerfully recounts his grandfather’s journey from Omaha Beach, the Battle of the Bulge, and the end of WWII.
Tickets are $8 advance and $12 at the door and can be purchased at the The Grand Center for Arts & Culture, Chamber of Commerce, Hy-Vee, and online at https://xmas1944.eventbrite.com.
