Research, research! When producing a show with historical accuracy, much research must be done to maintain the integrity of the original story. And through the research for our upcoming production of THE HIDING PLACE, we have not only uncovered magnificent details about our show but have discovered many new friends!
Some of our research, as far away as the Corrie ten Boom Museum in Haarlem, Netherlands, has uncovered new friends – Joop Buker and Marijke Gehrels, who have offered amazing information and will be hosting Eve Roberts (our Director) in February. Then at our back door in Waxahachie, Texas, we have found the lovely Pam Rosewell Moore. Pam was the assistant, traveling companion and nurse to Corrie ten Boom, during the last seven years of her life. Pam’s staff has provided contacts and valuable information as well.
One such contact we have recently had the opportunity to meet up close and personal is Chicago actress, Mimi Sagadin, who has not only performed on stage in THE HIDING PLACE, but has portrayed Holocaust survivor, Corrie ten Boom, on film in *RETURN TO THE HIDING PLACE. Mimi has become a quick friend and another helpful advisor to Eve for our production.
We are looking forward to pulling all of the details together and bringing YOU this heroic story of divinely inspired forgiveness in the midst of unimaginable circumstances – THE HIDING PLACE.
Watch the RETURN TO THE HIDING PLACE movie trailer below:
*RETURN TO THE HIDING PLACE, produced and directed by Peter C. Spencer, is a 2013 Feature Film Semi-Finalist in the San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival and is on their schedule for February 8 & 9.
In Holland during WWII, Corrie ten Boom’s army of untrained teenagers including Hans Poley, Piet Hartog, and their friends navigate a deadly labyrinth of challenges to rescue the Jewish people in their panicked exodus from death.
All the while, they embark on a nonstop, action-packed hunt with the Underground involving Gestapo hijacks, daring rescues, codes in windswept old windmills, and stunning miracles in one of history’s most famous dramas.
Climaxing in the true, breath-taking rescue of an entire orphanage of Jewish children marked for mass execution by Hitler’s assassins, audiences will both cheer and weep at this exciting, sobering true tale of Hans and the youth resistance movement that dared to resist one of History’s cruelest tyrants.
