The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
Aurand Harris Memorial Playwriting Award-Winner
By Mary and Andrew Arnault. Adapted from the story by Washington Irving.

Cast: 8m., 7w. (may be expanded by adding women's chorus members and townsfolk.) Early on a September morning the villagers of Sleepy Hollow await their new schoolmaster. When Ichabod finally arrives, his priggish correctness casts a pall over the gossipy, prank-playing townsfolk. Soon enough, though, his genteel manners and his hymn singing impress the ladies, including Katrina Van Tassel, the town belle. The menfolk are less thrilled, especially Brom Bones, Katrina's beau, and he begins plotting to rid himself of his unwelcome rival. Matters come to a head during the Van Tassel's Halloween party, after which the superstitious Ichabod is accosted on his lonely ride home by a fiendish apparition, the Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow. The next morning Ichabod has disappeared, leaving behind only a song in the wind, and a new legend is born. Unit set. Approximate Running Time: 85 minutes.
