The Accidental Hero
A multi-media, one-man show about a World War II American officer who miraculously liberates the Czech villages of his grandparents. It's a true story, written and performed by his grandson, Patrick Dewane. Patrick's grandfather refused to talk about his service in the war. Yet when he died, his basement yielded a treasure trove of typewritten accounts, photos and rare film footage. Patrick 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. The show, sponsored by the Sisseton Arts Council, begins at 7:00 p.m. at the Sisseton Performing Arts Center. Tickets will be $10.00 for adults; students will be admitted FREE o f charge.
