Presented by Acting Out Productions.

A fast-moving, funny and extremely suspenseful telling of this much beloved tale. Plus, there’ll be music, dancing and ghost stories told by a talent cast of 26 adult and student actors.

Ichabod Crane is the newly-hired school teacher in the post-Revolutionary War village of Sleepy Hollow. Ichabod is the kind of soft-spoken, seemingly timid sort who is constantly bullied by the ruffians who loiter about the Sleepy Hollow Tavern.

These wastrels are led by Brom Bones, who is a big, booming lug who loves to play practical jokes and intimidate folks like Ichabod. These men parry over the coquettish charms of Katrina Van Tassel. As it says in the script: “Men will do anything for Katrina. All men. All the time.” It is this love triangle that leads to one of the most frightening, exciting and spooky conclusions in all of American literature. Beware the Headless Horseman!

Adapted and directed by Jack Neary
