Theatre IV presents
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

Wednesday, October 9
Grades K – 5

Join Ichabod Crane, Brom Bones, the lovely Katrina Van Tassel, the residents of Tarry Town and, oh yes, the Headless Horseman, as they live the story made famous by the legend. This autumnal classic is faithful to the original story written by Washington Irving in 1819 and will thrill and perhaps chill students (though it’s not too scary).
