Back by popular demand, award winning theater company One Way Productions will present an encore  performance of “The Hiding Place,” a play based on the true story of the life of Corrie ten Boom. This production will perform for one night only on Friday, Aug. 8, at the Harris Center for the Arts at Folsom Lake College.

In World War II era Holland, Corrie ten Boom and her family of watchmakers are secretly sheltering Jewish refugees in their small home. With courage and conviction, they defy the Nazis until they are discovered and arrested, heroically sacrificing their freedom as a testimony to their loyalty and love of the Jewish people  This gripping drama is a true story that follows Corrie (Talia Vlaovich) and her sister Betsie (Krista Mackin) as they conquer the horror of a concentration camp through love and faith.

“The Hiding Place,” first published in 1971, touched many hearts. It continues to do so today as thousands travel yearly to Corrie’s home in the Netherlands to tour the Ten Boom Museum and see the famous, hidden room built behind a false wall. This production brings to life Corrie’s story of hope in the midst of darkness.

Ingrid Laurentiis-Wilson, a John McGrath Theatre Arts Scholarship recipient and SARTA Elly Award winning playwright, has written this original script with the permission of author Elizabeth Sherill.

Don’t miss this one night only performance. Tickets can be purchased at the Harris Center box office by calling (916) 608-6888 or online at  harriscenter.net. Although the play contains no offensive language or violence, due to the mature theme it is not recommended for children younger than 11.
