Hauntings expected at Island Crest Park

Youth Theatre Northwest is transforming Mercer Island’s Island Crest Park into a haunted forest. For two weeks, beginning Oct. 22, a troupe of actors will lead tours through the park’s trails in an outdoor performance called “Alone in the Dark: Mercer Island’s Haunted Forest.”

The 45-minute guided tour and performance — through shadowy and eerie trails, under the forest’s dark canopy — will take place rain or shine. Performances run at various times between 6 and 9 p.m., Thursday through Sunday from Oct. 22 to Nov. 1.

YTN is seeking volunteers to help with the event. Volunteers may contact Volunteer Coordinator Kristyne Site at For more information, visit the event Web site at
