Adapted from Washington Irving, the Legend of Sleepy Hollow is a spooky show alive with hilarious action and fun.  It begins when Ichabod Crane, a lightly goofy schoolmaster, comes to the farming community of Sleepy Hollow with all his worldly possessions.  He’s looking for a good life and a wealthy wife who will supply it. Once he sets eyes on the local beauty, Katrina Van Tassel, he’s sure his dream will come true.  Unhappily for Ichabod, Katrina has a boyfriend who’s extremely jealous…  the boisterous Brom Bones. 

To complicate matters the graveyard is haunted by a small army of restless spirits, including the most famous phantom of all, the Headless Horseman.  At a party, Ichabod proposes marriage to Katrina, but is booted out by Brom and forced to make his way home through a terrible storm. In the dark, there’s something shadowy and towering intent on taking Ichabod’s life—the Headless Horseman! Poor Ichabod has to outrun the galloping phantom! Does he? No one knows for sure as the schoolmaster is never seen again.

Directors Ben and Seth Wilcox bring this classic tale to the Milford High School auditorium. The cast comes from all around the area.  Performance dates are March 15, 16, and 17 . Curtain is at 7pm for the Friday and Saturday shows and 2pm for the Sunday show.
