The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

Adapted by Christopher Castanho

Young Audiences | October 21 – October 28

It’s Halloween night and Will invites his friends up to the attic to tell spooky stories. Suddenly when the group of children find Washington Irving’s “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” in his grandfather’s old trunk, they begin acting out the story. By using things only found in an attic, this inventive and theatrical retelling of the classic story is perfect for the Halloween season. “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” published in 1820, tells the story of Ichabod Crane and his attempt to win the heart of his love, Katrina Van Tassel. This comical and ghostly tale accompanies Crane through the town of Sleepy Hollow, NY, where he is visited by a mysterious ghost, the Headless Horseman.

The play is appropriate for middle and high school students, and this production will feature student performers, designers, and technicians. The Pay What You Can performances will include distribution of free books to students, as part of our initiative connecting theatre to literacy.
