A Comedic Version Rises from this Classic Halloween Tale
WHAT: The Headless Horseman of
Sleepy Silly Hollow at Center for Puppetry Arts
Back for an encore run, the Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers bring their unique brand of hip humor to the famous Washington Irving short story. In this comedic version, schoolteacher Ichabod Crane helps the Headless Horseman find a new head and a spookier image. Meanwhile, a jealous Brom Bones tries to run Ichabod out of town as they both vie for the affection of Katrina Van Tassel. In the end the Horseman saves the day and everyone lives happily ever after!
