Washington Irving's spooky Halloween classic tells the tale of Ichabod Crane who comes to the small, quiet town of Sleepy Hollow, New York to be the new schoolmaster of the village, falls for the beautiful Katrina Van Tassel, and has the ride of his life one night chased by the town's resident ghost, The Headless Horseman. This play contains all the chills, thrills, and laughs to keep any audience on the edge of their seats.
