The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

Ohio Shakespeare Festival

Akron, OH
Professional Theatre

Book by: Joe and Sarah Pine
Music and Lyrics by: Scott McKenna Campbell
Adapted from the novella by Washington Irving

October 6 - October 23, 2022

Show Description:

The village of Tarrytown is so peaceful and untouched by time, the residents call it "Sleepy Hollow." Some believe there is an enchantment cast over the valley, and everyone seems to walk about in a dream. With dreams, however, come nightmares... such as the ghostly figure of a horseman riding the countryside in search of his lost head.

Just in time for Halloween, Ohio Shakespeare brings to new life Washington Irving’s classic story of Ichabod Crane, Brom Bones, Katrina Van Tassel, and the infamous Headless Horseman. Continuing the Ohio Shakes Family Theatre Adventure Series (Robin Hood…, The Three Musketeers…, Treasure Island…, Maid Marion…) this world premiere musical is an Ohio Shakespeare original, fit for the whole family to enjoy together.
