Flames of Freedom: The Perilous Journey of an Ozarks Aviator


LIMITED ENGAGEMENT PERFORMANCES at College of the Ozarks in THE KEETER CENTER ROYAL OAK FORUM


College of the Ozarks is proud to once again present an original, patriotic play. “Flames of Freedom” is the compelling, true story of Lt. Earl Woodard, a graduate from The School of the Ozarks who became a navigator on a B-17 bomber for the Army Air Corps during World War II. Shot down in occupied France, Earl, otherwise known as “Woodie,” is transported undercover to Paris, turned over to the French Resistance, and introduced to the Queen of the Pyrenees, a key player in the effort to smuggle airmen out of occupied France. Find out what happens to Woodie and his crew in the exciting conclusion of the Jones Theatre Company’s performance of this awe-inspiring, patriotic play.
