Home for Christmas, 1944 at State Street Theater
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. It takes place on the stage at the historic State Street Theater at 1 N. State Street.
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.
