The Boston Theatre Company presentation of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, directed by Shawn Robinson, runs Friday, Nov. 10 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 11 at 2 and 7 p.m. in the Thomas Nelson High School auditorium.
Adapted from the Washington Irving classic, this spooky show is alive with hilarious action and fun. It begins when Ichabod Crane, a slightly 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 local graveyard is haunted by a small army of restless spirits, including the most famous phantom of all, the Headless Horseman.
