Wicked Lit opens next week

The Wicked Lit Halloween Theatre Festival will open next week, beginning with discount preview performances on Thursday, October 4 (only $30), then officially opening on Friday, October 5 (when tickets will cost $40). The show will run on select dates through November 10. Many performances are already sold out, so if you plan to go, now is the time to purchase in advance.

For Halloween 2018, Wicked Lit's immersive production will be performed entirely within the Mountain View Mausoleum (no exteriors in the cemetery). The show includes two plays: Teig O'Kane & The Corpse (pictured at top) and a new version of Charles Dickens' The Chimes. In the former, a young Irishman who refuses to commit to adulthood finds himself bound to an animated corpse. In the latter a conflicted father confronts goblins that bring him to the brink of death and back again.

There are two performances nightly, starting at 7:30 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. The show runs 75 minutes. Audience size is smaller. There is no pre-show performances. There will be an interactive exhibit featuring past Wicked Lit costumes, puppets, and photo opportunities.
