Sleepy Hollow a musical tale

Sleepy Hollow a musical tale

This new musical puts a current spin on the classic Washington Irving story The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. On Halloween night, three modern-day children find themselves traveling back in time to 18th century New Amsterdam, arriving right in the middle of Sleepy Hollow with all its odd characters, traditions, ghosts and goblins. They’ll need all their ingenuity to get back home to the present! The show runs as a one-act, but can easily accommodate an intermission for a two-act presentation.

On Halloween night,  when three modern-day kids decide to trIck or treat at the old “Crane House,” they are magically transported right into the middle of the classic tale of Ichabod Crane, Brom Bones, Katie Van Tassel, and – of course – the Headless Horseman! Lots of spooky and hilarious moments in this far-out time travel tale, as the three kids cope with life in 1790,  goblins, and how to find their way back home.
