A Global Cinema Event: The Hiding Place
A year ago this month, Rabbit Room Theatre launched with my stage adaptation of Corrie Ten Boom’s The Hiding Place. It was a project that stretched me and the whole theatre team in a wealth of ways, and we were overjoyed with the reception. The show ran for 4-weeks to sold out performances at the Soli Deo Center in Nashville, Tennessee, and since then theater-goers and Corrie-lovers all over the world have been asking, “What’s next?” Well, the time has come to tell everyone what we’ve been working on for the past year. What most folks don’t know is that during the run of shows in Nashville, the stage play was filmed for cinema audiences over the course of two marathon-days of shooting.
Today, I’m SO excited to announce that, in partnership with Trafalgar Releasing, WTA Media, Matt Logan Productions, and MA2LA, Rabbit Room Theatre’s production of The Hiding Place is coming to a cinema near you. First, on August 3 & 5 for the U.S. and Canada, and then August 16 everywhere else.
I am beyond proud of the entire cast and crew and cannot wait for folks to see their work on the big screen. Tony and Laura Matula have worked tirelessly in post production to edit, add foley effects, score, record additional dialogue, color correct, and export terabytes upon terabytes of files for editorial screenings and testing. These two friends are also the creative all-star team behind the design of all the show’s posters and title treatments and photography (in fact they’ve done that work for my other shows as well, The Battle of Franklin, Frankenstein, Sonata at Payne Hollow, and Lindenfair), and none of this would exist without their patience, hard work, and dedication to creating something amazing.
Corrie’s story is one that changed me for the better. It’s been changing people for a generation. It’s a tale that deserves to be told over and over again, and I’m humbled to be able to play a part in her legacy. We hope you’ll come see it, and then we hope you’ll spread the gospel that Corrie spent her life declaring: that Christ plays in ten thousand places and there is no pit so deep that he is not deeper still. Christus Victor.
