College Street Players present play
The Legend of Sleep Hollow will be presented beginning this week at the Hartselle High School Auditorium. Show times are Thur., Oct. 22, at 7 p.m., Sat., Oct. 24, at 2:30 p.m.and 7 p.m. and Sun. afternoon, Oct. 25, at 2:30 p.m.
The play is based on the book written by Washington Irving and set in the small New England town of Sleepy Hollow. The main character is Ichabod Crane, the new schoolmaster who moves to Sleepy Hollow. Crane is a quirky, intelligent man who loves the attention of the ladies in town, and the ladies in town find him quite charming. He was also known to have quite an appetite.
Sleepy Hollow was a small farming town that was filled with local legends and ghost stories, including the Headless Horseman.
One of the ladies Crane has his eyes on is Katrina. However, one of the local Sleepy Hollow Boys, Brom Bones, a town bully also held Kate as his love interest. The boys do not want Crane to stay in town and keep the town ladies attention.
Katrina is a beautiful girl who hopes to find an intelligent man to take as her husband. She is interested in the new schoolmaster but has feelings for Brom as well.
You are invited to come out and watch the show and find out if the Sleepy Hollow Boys or the Headless Horsemen foil the plans of Ichabod Crane.
This show is not a musical but does have one dance included. The show tends to be a bit more mature and the audience will laugh, be frightened and enjoy watching a classic tale come to life on the stage. This is a perfect show for Halloween and as the season transitions to fall.
