Comedy. By Kathryn Schultz Miller. From the story by Washington Irving.
Cast: 5m., 4w. Here is the spooky classic story by Washington Irving, 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, the coquettish Katrina and Ichabod's brutish rival, Brom Bones. There are also six characters who play storytellers, keeping the action and pace moving throughout. 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 of the original work yet expertly involves young people with lots of suspense and comedy. A perfect Halloween treat, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is exciting family entertainment any time of the year. Suitable for touring. Flexible staging. Approximate running time: 45-50 minutes
