    What to Know

    • Mountain View Mausoleum

    • Oct. 4 through Nov. 10, 2018

    • $35-$45

    Beautiful settings and seasonal theatrical productions are as entwined as ivy and wrought iron, at least in the minds of the many fans who wait for a particular event to return to a particular place.

    And if you love your autumnal dramatics, the sort of presented-live theatrics that call upon the deeper and more chilling themes of the fall, then you know Wicked Lit, the annual offering from Unbound Productions.

    And if you know Wicked Lit, you surely know where the drama-delicious event takes place each October and November: Mountain View, in Altadena.

    In years gone by, some of the theatrics have spread out into Mountain View's cemetery, but the 2018 production will remain inside the mausoleum, giving guests a chance to settle in and fully focus upon the gentle frights at hand.

    Those frights can be pre-sensed through the very name of the 2018 happening — Wicked Lit: The Chimes and the Corpse — and the two vignettes that comprise the evening. Look for the world premiere adaptation of "Teig O'Kane and the Corpse" by Kerry Kazmierowicztrimm and "The Chimes: A Goblin Story," a new production for the company. 

    Changes to expect, if you attended before? Two curtain times a night, "smaller group sizes," and "lower ticket prices," too. 

    Those run from $35 to $45, depending upon the evening and time you choose.

    But choose soon, for the word is that tickets for shows are nearing various sell-out points.

    The "Immersive Theatre" experience fills the Mountain View Mausoleum with words and whimsy from Oct. 4 through Nov. 10, on select nights.
