Just in time for Halloween, AKT Academy at Sierra Madre Playhouse will present Foolish Mortals on Wednesday, October 24, at 7:00 p.m.

AKT Academy is a company of young artists in residence under the direction of Alison Kalmus at Sierra Madre Playhouse. Foolish Mortals (the name comes from Shakespeare) are the most advanced performers of AKT Academy. The Foolish Mortals are Julian Moser, Alison Wang, Kevin Ying, Eliza Cevallos, Aidan O’Connor, Jude Gomez, Selina Ho, Myles Hutchinson and Momo Inouye-Wu.

The Foolish Mortals will perform two works: Washington Irving’s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Edgar Allen Poe’s The Raven, both pieces appropriately atmospheric and spooky for the season. They’ll be presented in the style of old-time radio drama, with live sound effects.
The Foolish Mortals will be joined in this performance by special guest Sierra Madre Playhouse Artistic Director Christian Lebano.

Estimated running time is one hour. Foolish Mortals will be performed on Wednesday, October 24, 2018 at seven p.m. at Sierra Madre Playhouse, 87 W. Sierra Madre Blvd., Sierra Madre. This is just east of Pasadena. There is ample free parking behind the Playhouse. Admission is free. Reservations are not necessary. For more information, contact (626) 355-4318 or visit
