‘The Shining’ In Omaha

 

The Shining Door
Amazon

It originally was a book released in 1977. The third book written by Stephen King and his first hardcover bestseller, ‘The Shining‘ helped solidify Stephen King as a top author in the horror genre.  King first wrote ‘The Shining’ as a five act play, but eventually it evolved into the book, with a movie to follow in 1980 and a TV mini-series in 1997.

If you aren’t familiar with ‘The Shining’, it’s the story of the Torrence family and their struggle with inhuman forces of The Overlook Hotel in Sidewinder, Colorado.  But the stage adaptation of ‘The Shining’ is about to come to life closer to home…in Omaha, Nebraska.

In a fundraising project, Omaha’s Benson Theater will be presenting a stage version of ‘The Shining’.  It will be presented March 21st and 22nd, 2014 at the Sokol Auditorium in Omaha.  The script was written by Jason Levering and fellow writer Aaron Sailors and did receive the approval of Stephen King.  Levering will also be directing the stage adaptation.

The historic Benson Theatre, 6054 Maple Street in Omaha, is currently being renovated to serve as a shared community space for business education and artistic performance, and this production of ‘The Shining’ is hoping to add to the funds needed to purchase the historic building by April, 2014.
