Rehearsals will be on Saturday mornings, with some weekday evening rehearsals just before the recording date and the live performance. Details are available.
THE STORY: Ichabod Crane is the new schoolmaster in the quaint early nineteenth century Hudson Valley village of Sleepy Hollow. Though nervous by nature and too credulous when it comes to ghost stories, he yearns for the hand of local favorite Katrina Van Tassel. But a burly local swain, Brom Bones, has his eyes on Katrina as well. As Katrina plays them off against each other, Halloween approaches – the anniversary of the deadly ride of the Headless Horseman. Can Ichabod win Katrina’s heart and avoid both Brom’s anger and the Horseman’s demonic curse?
