Radio Plays from Yesteryear: The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
- Oct 24, 2018 - 12:00 PM
- Sierra Madre Playhouse
Just in time for Halloween, AKT Academy at Sierra Madre Playhouse will present The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Edgar Allan Poe's classic poem "The Raven", performed by Foolish Mortals.
AKT Academy is a company of young artists in residence under the direction of Alison Kalmus at Sierra Madre Playhouse, and the Foolish Mortals (taken from Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream) are AKT Academy’s highest level performance group. The group is made up of Julian Moser, Alison Wang, Kevin Ying, Aidan O’Connor, Jude Gomez, Selina Ho, Myles Hutchinson and Momo Inouye-Wu.
For ONE NIGHT ONLY, 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.
Foolish Mortals will be joined in this performance by special guest, Christian Lebano, Artistic Director of Sierra Madre Playhouse.
