Rabbit Room Theatre Presents: THE HIDING PLACE

By

It’s been a long time coming, but today I finally get to unveil the Rabbit Room’s newest program: Rabbit Room Theatre. And on June 30th, 2022, we will launch headlong into our fresh, newly-imagined production of Corrie Ten Boom’s The Hiding Place.

By incarnating stories on the stage, Rabbit Room Theatre embodies our belief that beautiful, well-told, and truth-bearing tales are a fundamental means by which we understand ourselves, our world, and our God. Through the unique magic of drama, we aim to nourish Nashville and its theatre community by creating works that reflect our values of excellence in story, art, and music. 

I initially adapted Corrie’s book for the stage back in 2019 and it premiered at the George Theater in Houston (you can read the Broadway World review of that production here). But in the past couple of years, the play has undergone significant changes and revisions through collaboration and workshopping with the Nashville theatre community. We’re confident that the play is now better than ever, and we can’t wait to show it to all of you.

Rabbit Room Theatre is proud to be partnering with Matt Logan Productions to bring the Ten Boom story to life. I’ve worked with Matt on a number of past productions and if you’re familiar with Studio Tenn, you’ll recognize his work from a HUGE number of their past shows. He’s a visionary director and designer and I’m thrilled to be working with him again on this story.

We’ll have full information, casting, photos, trailers, behind the scenes material, and who knows what else in the coming weeks. But for now, mark your calendars. You’re invited to a night at the theater.

Tickets go on sale soon. Click the button below if you’d like to be notified when they do (along with other theatre-related news).

Pete Peterson is the author of the Revolutionary War adventure The Fiddler’s Gun and its sequel Fiddler’s Green. Among the many strange things he’s been in life are the following: U.S Marine air traffic controller, television editor, art teacher and boatwright at the Florida Sheriffs Boys Ranch, and progenitor of the mysterious Budge-Nuzzard. He lives in Nashville with his wife, Jennifer, where he's the Executive Director of the Rabbit Room and Managing Editor of Rabbit Room Press.

    How great! I was so incredibly happy to read these news!
    Sometimes I missed theatre among all these other art forms in talkings in the Rabbit Room. But suddenly the rabbit scampers around the corner and jumps straight into the spotlight… Wonderful!

    I saw this and I am going to take my parents and my family.  Love the Hiding Place!  Any suggestions about how younger children might do at this performance (I’m thinking of middle elementary) with the content?
