The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Washington Irving's spooky classic, is presented with all the thrills, chills and laughs that keep young audiences on the edge of their seats. The storybook tale revolves around the main characters--the bumbling, awkward schoolteacher, Ichabod Crane, the coquettish Katrina and Ichabod's brutish rival, Brom Bones. As much fun as the play presents, it saves the best for last--the ride of the headless horseman. This adaptation remains dedicated to the spirit and storyline of Washington Irving's work and expertly involves young people with lots of suspense and comedy. Audience participation is carefully written in the script and adds a spark of spontaneity. A perfect Halloween treat, but don't hesitate to put it anywhere in your season, Ichabod brings them out any time of year!
"This adaptation, by Kathryn Schultz Miller, is both funny and simple for a young audience to understand. an important consideration, full of shivers and merriment." - The Orlando Sentinel
