The year is 1940, and as World War II unfolds, Nazi soldiers dominate the streets of Dutch Haarlem. “Hiding Place” is inspired by the true story of Corrie and Betsie ten Boom, Christian sisters who boldly challenge the evil that is so prevalent in their world. As Corrie and Betsie witness the horrors surrounding them each day, they determine to offer protection for those in danger by constructing a small hiding place in their home. Don’t miss this exquisite and poetic performance of dancers from the Ballet Magnificat!
