“Stephen Joseph Burke is one of the most talented composers in the nation today. His musical scores thrill audiences and his theatre productions powerfully evangelize in a way that is unique and effective.” - Jordan Scott Gilbert, award winning Broadway producer.
"The portrayal of the WWII experiences of the Ten Boom family evoked a lot of emotions in viewers, and especially in those who have read The Hiding Place. The very talented Alisha Burke, wife of the composer and scriptwriter Stephen Burke, amazed me in her depiction of Corrie Ten Boom. There was no doubt among the spellbound audience that this was the real Corrie whose unwavering faith in the Lord Jesus did shine throughout the drama.
May God grant all of the artists of the drama boundless energy and compassion to share the wonderful plan of God's forgiveness and salvation to a dying world!"

"Let me fully recommend the ministry of Shining Light Players. Both our church and school ministry have benefited from the time and talent these players have invested. When we hosted "The Hiding Place" the altars were full before I could finish the invitation. At our school, several students made life changing decisions after a special presentation. I'm thrilled these servants have stepped out and surrendered in this area of ministry. We anticipate having them back on a regular basis. What a blessing to the local church!"
