Sleepy Hollow
Book by Judy Freed, Music by Elizabeth Doyle,
Lyrics by Owen Kalt. Adapted from "The Legend
of Sleepy Hollow" by Washington Irving.

A restless ghost.  A scheming schoolmaster.  
An apprehensive heiress.  And a teenage girl
who thinks demons are delightful.  

Welcome to Sleepy Hollow, a delightfully
spooky family musical.  Tensions in the little
village escalate when schoolmaster Ichabod
Crane competes with a shy blacksmith to win
the heart of a lovely young heiress. Meanwhile,
rumors circulate that the local ghost, the
Headless Horseman, is seeking his revenge.

Nothing is as it seems in this fresh, funny
adaptation of the classic American tale.
