Altadena, CA. (August 19th 2018) Going to a live event is exhilarating; there’s an energy that is transferred from the audience to the performers and vice versa. But, Wicked Lit adds one more ingredient to the mix that takes the performances to the next level and that is to play at the Mountain View Mausoleum. That’s right; you can watch horror plays in a working cemetery and mausoleum.
This year, Wicked Lit announces The Chimes and The Corpse playing from October 4th – November 10th. Also, there a few changes this year including two curtain times 7:30 PM and 9:00 PM, smaller group sizes, and the entire performance and lobby will be indoors. There will be no preshow performances, however, there will be an interactive “museum” exhibit featuring past Wicked Lit costumes, puppets, and photo opportunities.
