The Shack by William Paul Young Adapted for Stage

Readers have contributed hundreds of thousands of stories about how William Paul Young‘s The Shack has changed their lives. These stories inspired a live show called Stories from The Shack. It will debut at Seattle’s WaMu Theater on May 8th.

According to PR web, the show will mix “elements of Cirque du Soleil and Charlie Rose-like interviews.” Right now, the show has enough funding for its Seattle dates but they would like to travel to three other cities: San Diego, Boise, and Denver. They’re trying to raise $150,000 via Kickstarter within the next thirty days; so far they have $8,000.

Here’s more from the show’s Kickstarter page: “Now we’re taking the shack experience¬†live through an awe inspiring synthesis of music, performance art, aerials, dance, interviews with William Paul Young, and songs from one of American Idol’s most popular stars, Danny Gokey. It will be one of the most awe inspiring shows you’ll ever see.”
