Historic Schoenbrunn Village would like to invite visitors to enjoy a lively retelling of the famous Washington Irving short story by the glow of a bonfire on the lower level of Historic Schoenbrunn Village. Travel to that not so sleepy, Sleepy Hollow and meet Ichabod Crane, Baltus and Katrina Van Tassel, Brom Bones and the rest of the eccentric Townspeople. While Ichabod courts the lovely Katrina, tensions rise between Ichabod and Brom. Ichabod suddenly disappears and the only thing that still remains is a smashed pumpkin and his hat. The local legend goes that his head was taken by the Headless Horseman one spooky night.
Shannon Krocker, director, is excited for opening night. "When Steve Long wrote his version of the tale, he wrote in a way that could only be told in Tuscarawas County" she said. "The friendships and families that are part of the cast and those that attend the show encapsulate the small-town feel of spooky stories in the dark around a campfire."
Tickets are on sale Sept. 1, for the upcoming production. Performances are at 7 and 9 p.m. Oct. 25 and Oct. 26. Reservations must be made in advance by going to www.schoenbrunnvillage.eventbrite.com.
