This fundraiser will feature a silent auction, cash bar and bites, Wicked Lit book sales and signings by playwrights, and intimate performances of excerpts from classic Wicked Lit plays throughout the mausoleum!

The emphasis of the night will be on the plays, the actors, and the space and less on tech and effects. All purchases go to support our 501c3 nonprofit, our artists, and our Pasadena-based education program.

Production A and Production B will each run 50 minutes.
Each has four start times over the course of the night:
6:30, 7:30, 9:00 and 10:00pm.

The overall fundraiser event (silent auction, book signings, etc.)
runs 6:00 – 11:00pm.
