Based on a true story, the play is a dramatic depiction of the book Miracle in the Ozarks, by Jerry C. Davis, president of the college. The main character is a local student who was drafted in 1943 to serve in WWII. One of the army troops who invaded Normandy in France, he was later captured by the Germans. This true American hero was tortured, suffered the loss of his best friend and witnessed horrific atrocities at the hands of the Nazis.

Performances are at 2 p.m. You can check the schedule here.
