The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
October 19, 2017 @ 7:30 pm
Averitt Center for the Arts
Washington Irving’s spooky classic, presented with all the thrills, chills and laughs that keep audiences on the edge of their seats. The storybook tale follows the greedy, awkward schoolteacher Ichabod Crane, who tries to win the hand of the flirtatious and wealthy Katrina Van Tassel. However, neighborhood hero Brom Bones has also fallen in love with Katrina and has a tendency to play pranks on others – which soon comes to haunt Ichabod. Despite being especially fascinated by ghost stories and witches, Ichabod lectures about illogical superstition, but it immediately becomes apparent that superstition rules the life of Sleepy Hollow. Ichabod is never safe from the whispers of fear which pursue him; though the fears seem fanciful and the fun intentional, their effect on Ichabod is, ultimately, devastatingly real as he eventually comes to face-to-face with Sleepy Hollow’s most infamous ghost, the Headless Horseman.
