Ichabod Crane, a nervous and superstitious sort, is the new schoolmaster assigned to Sleepy Hollow, a small town by the Hudson River. He sets his eyes on Katrina, the eldest daughter of rich farmer Baltus Van Tassel. But Katrina is already "claimed" by Brom Bones, the biggest bully in town! As Ichabod woos the fair Katrina, Brom schemes to regain what he considers his rightful place. He blackmails four unwilling witches into conjuring up the infamous Headless Horseman. With the help of a little stage magic, the Horseman makes a pumpkin fly overhead as Ichabod runs through the audience -- a stunning climax! Add all the other eccentric and not so eccentric inhabitants of Sleepy Hollow, and you've got a comedy perfect for Halloween or for anytime someone wants to tell a classic tale of love, revenge and intrigue. Runs approximate 75 minutes.
#2233 The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
"Our set was the woods of Sleepy Hollow, so we had larger than life tree trunks on stage. For our dinner and classroom scenes, we simply brought in props to suggest a change in location. It worked very well and lent itself to a more fluid effect. We never had to close the curtain. Audiences loved it!"
K.S., Director, Collierville (TN) High School

“Our production of Legend of Sleepy Hollow was a great hit! The students who performed really loved the characters and storyline and so many audience members enjoyed bringing this show just in time for Halloween. We did simple set pieces with a background spelling out Sleepy Hollow with spider webs and got raves about this. Affordable & easy.” --J.I. Burlingame Intermediate School, Burlingame, CA
