Accidental Hero

Returning November 7-11!

Special Veteran's Day Performances!


The extraordinary true story of a WWII officer who ends up liberating the same Czech town where his grandparents lived.  Matt Konop had grown up speaking Czech on a farm in Wisconsin, ashamed of his humble background.  Thrown into WWII, he hits Omaha Beach, is a hero in the Battle of the Bulge and survives to the final days of the war.  Then his story takes a turn from yet another soldier's tale to something more epic when he is given the dangerous assignment to go behind enemy lines into Czechoslovakia.  At the border, he decides to poke in alone.  His life would never be the same, as one coincidence after another brings him face-to-face with his identity.  What once was a source of shame becomes his greatest pride as the people of his grandparent's hometown hailed him as their "liberator."  They, in fact, liberated him.  Told with never-before-seen color movie clips from WWII, vintage music and photos, The Accidental Hero is a multi-media delight that has captivated audiences across the country.
