Synopsis: This is the spooky classic story by Washington Irving, presented with all the thrills, chills and laughs that keep audiences on the edge of their seats. The storybook tale revolves around the main characters—the bumbling, awkward schoolteacher Ichabod, the coquettish Katrina and Ichabod’s brutish rival, Brom Bones. As much fun as the play presents, it saves the best for last—the ride of the headless horseman! The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is exciting family entertainment.


KATRINA (Female in her 20s): Coy, young charmer, the subject of Ichabod’s and Brom’s adoring affection.

BROM BONES (Male in his 20s-30s): Ichabod’s roaring, roistering rival.

Chorus (a minimum of 6, mid to late teens through young adults): The chorus never leaves the stage and keeps the play running as well as playing all the other characters (animals, ghosts etc.) in the play.
