Sept. 10th: THE JUNGLE BOOK
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
This one-man version of the classic horror tale is a fully staged presentation sure to delight and entertain all ages. You will see Ichabod interacting with students in the schoolhouse and leading the church congregation in song. You will join him on his way to a wonderful party where he dances with the girls he loves. Then you will follow him on his fateful journey home as he encounters the “Headless Horseman” and disappears from the hollow forever!!
A GREAT WAY TO KICK OFF THE HALLOWEEN SEASON!!
Both young and older audiences may enjoy great participation in the show. As Ichabod’s school class, they are given an authentic 17th century spelling lesson. Later, they become a part of the church congregation, and may sing along with a hymn.
Presented by Neill Hartley, a professional actor who has performed with many local and regional theaters and is on the theater faculty of the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA.
