Asian Story Theater will present the fourth showing of "Asian Scary Theater" in the Chuang Garden at 404 Third Avenue on Sunday, 10/29 at 7 p.m.


ASIAN SCARY THEATER, a project of Asian Story Theater, focuses on “chicken skin” storytelling–featuring stories from printed and oral traditions of Asia and various Pacific Islands.  At the SDCHM, we are excited to host ASIAN SCARY THEATER in our garden on Saturday, 10/28 at 4 p.m. (Entrance will be through the Dr. Sun Yat Sen Memorial Gate on Third Avenue, near the front door to the museum).

ASIAN SCARY THEATER recalls the mid-20th century radio theater, harkening back to a kind of storytelling where the performance is mostly auditory, relying on vocal performances of the cast to tell the story.  Music, Sound Effects, Narration, and Dialogue feature prominently in this format, providing a very personal connection to and intimacy with the audience, and the scene unfolding primarily in the audience’s own imagination.  These radio-style dramas are performed live, where the audience is able to see the foley, the performers, and even participate in creating this audio space. 

Everyone who purchases a ticket to any one of the four shows will also get a pass to visit the museum, redeemable within a month!
