Debut performance of the extraordinary stories of seven veterans serving in World War II and the Korean War
Audiences can experience the breathtaking stories of seven extraordinary veterans when the Double Nickels Theatre Company presents, “Scattered Pictures” at The Atlas Performing Arts Center on Saturday, November 26, 2011 at 3:00 PM.
Their heroic stories have never been celebrated. These stories tell of a courageous man declared dead and later found to be a prisoner of war. Another recounts an officer who served in Asia as part of the majority African-American troops who built the 1,000 mile Ledo Road between India, Burma and China. We are also transported into the lives of the oldest living African-American West Point graduate and a boy who became a Boy Scout, a Boy Scout who became a general and a general who became a successful businessman. We experience the phenomenal story of a fighter pilot and his escort, a Tuskegee Airman, who met for the first time decades after their mission when they were 75 years old. And all these remarkable men are alive today to help us tell and relive their stories.
Tickets for “Scattered Pictures” are $30 and are available at atlasarts.org.
A reception to host several of these veterans immediately follows the performance.
