9781620881699: Sleepy Hollow

A restless ghost. A scheming schoolmaster. An apprehensive heiress. And a teenage girl who thinks demons are delightful. Welcome to Sleepy Hollow, a delightfully 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 Washington Irving's classic American tale, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. 60-90 minutes (full show is 90 minutes, but may be cut down to a 60 minute one-act version). Ideal for middle schools, high schools, youth theatres, universities, and community theatres. Published and performances licensed by YouthPLAYS (www.youthplays.com), publisher of plays for young actors and audiences.
