Whidbey Children's Theatert to Present Sleepy Hollow November 8-17
There's something spooky going on in Sleepy Hollow! That's what innocent schoolteacher Ichabod Crane will soon find out, in Washington Irving's classic tale retold with a 1950's twist!
Whidbey Children's Theater is proud to present The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, the inaugural show in their new theater space next to Langley Middle School. Familiar local face Michael Morgen has stepped off the stage to take the director's reins for this spooky and entertaining ride.
"I wanted to be able to bring this classic tale of mystery, love, superstition, and the supernatural, and also make it exciting and accessible to today's kids and audiences. We've updated the story and setting to a small town in the 1950's, which makes for a lot of new exciting things we can achieve with this play."
Young schoolteacher Ichabod Crane brings his straight-laced etiquette and sensibilities to the backwoods town of Sleepy Hollow, and soon finds himself vying for the affections of Katrina Van Tassel against the rough-cut Brom Bones, leader of the Sleepy Hollow Boys motorcycle gang. Will Brom send the lanky lover packing, or will something more sinister intervene?
The cast of 6th-12th graders are embracing their roles and looking forward to Opening Night on November 8th!
