Mary & Andrew Arnault from Washington Irving

Published by Dramatic Publishing

8 Male 7 Female

Early on a September morning the villagers of Sleepy Hollow await their new schoolmaster

When Ichabod finally arrives, his priggish correctness casts a pall over the gossipy, prank-playing townsfolk

Soon enough, though, his genteel manners and his hymn singing impress the ladies, including Katrina Van Tassel, the town belle

The menfolk are less thrilled, especially Brom Bones, Katrina's beau, and he begins plotting to rid himself of his unwelcome rival

Matters come to a head during the Van Tassel's Halloween party, after which the superstitious Ichabod is accosted on his lonely ride home by a fiendish apparition, the Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow

The next morning Ichabod has disappeared, leaving behind only a song in the wind, and a new legend is born
