Adapted from “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” by Washington Irving

A restless ghost. A scheming schoolmaster. An apprehensive heiress. And a teenage girl who thinks demons are delightful. Welcome to Sleepy Hollow, a deliciously spooky family musical. Tensions in the little village escalate when schoolmaster Ichabod Crane competes with a shy blacksmith to win the heart of a lovely young heiress. Meanwhile, rumors circulate that the local ghost, the Headless Horseman, is seeking his revenge. Nothing is as it seems in this fresh, funny adaptation of the classic American tale.
