Based on the Washington Irving classic
Book by Vera Morris. Music and lyrics by Bill Francoeur
Here’s a show alive with action, excitement and dynamic music. When an inane schoolmaster, Ichabod Crane, comes to the farming community of Sleepy Hollow, he brings with him all his worldly possessions as he seeks a well-to-do wife. He’s sure his dream will come true when he spots the striking Katrina Van Tassel. Sadly for poor Ichabod, the boisterous Brom Bones is Katrina’s extremely jealous boyfriend. Matters are complicated even more as the ghostly graveyard is haunted by a host of tense spirits, including the Headless Horseman, the most renowned phantom of all. When Ichabod proposes marriage to Katrina at a party, he is kicked out by Brom, forcing him to make his way through the graveyard during a raging storm. In the dark, we sense there’s something overshadowing poor Ichabod, aiming to take the poor soul’s life! This suspenseful musical is filled with a variety of songs that fit the bill: "A Superstitious Yankee Folk," "Ghost in the Graveyard" and of course, "The Headless Horseman."
Rehearsals for the most part will be Tues-Thurs 6:30-8:30 starting August 18.
