The Legend of the Headless Horseman
“As schoolmaster of this village, I deal in simple fact. And the simple fact is this—there are no such things as ghosts!” So says Ichabod Crane, the newly-hired schoolmaster of Sleepy Hollow, a superstitious little community in New York’s Hudson Valley, 1790. Even while strange sounds and mysterious happenings follow the nervous young teacher all around the hollow, he persistently professes his disbelief in all things supernatural—until the night of Katrina Van Tassel’s Halloween Frolic, that is. Riding home that evening, Ichabod comes face to face—so to speak—with Sleepy Hollow’s most feared and famous ghost.
Children ages seven through thirteen are invited to join us for this wild midnight ride of a story. Ghoulies, ghosts, and galloping headless horsemen haunt this American Halloween classic—Washington Irving’s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.
Each child will play an important character from the story as we work together together to bring the residents of Sleepy Hollow to life in a short theatrical version of this fun and creepy scarytale.
Workshop ends with a performance for family and friends!

This traditional southern folk story is thought to have originated in Alabama during the period of the Civil War. In Skeleton Dance, a rattling skeleton comes back from the grave to sit in his favorite rocking chair on the porch, much to the shock and dismay of his widow. The skeleton refuses to leave until, one day, when a traveling fiddler comes to the house and plays a tune so fast and happy that the skeleton can't help but get up and dance. He dances so fast and so wild that he ends up falling to pieces, and the widow and the fiddler scoop up the bones and put them back in his coffin. But, people say that, when you walk by his grave in the churchyard, you can still hear those bones down there rattling and dancing, even after all these years.
Children ages four through six are invited to join us for this story that’s party silly and part spooky.
Each child will play an important character from the story as we work together together to bring this Halloween tale to life through the art of theatre. Then, after we act out the story, we will learn a funny skeleton dance of our own.
Children are encouraged to attend in their Halloween costumes!
