A fresh new take on a legendary story! Newly-arrived schoolmaster Ichabod Crane soon learns that all is not what it seems in Sleepy Hollow: people are disappearing one by one. Legend has it the victims are being taken by a Headless Horseman. The town, wary of outsiders, becomes fearful of the books and teachings Ichabod brings to the village. And when Ichabod falls in love with Katrina Van Tassel, their blossoming romance ultimately leads to jealousy, mistrust, and finally, betrayal, we learn that some of the darkest monsters are the ones that lie within. Sleepy Hollow features a book by Tony nominee Hunter Foster (Summer of ‘42, Jasper in Deadland) and music and lyrics by Tony nominee Paul Gordon (Jane Eyre, Daddy Long Legs).


Rated PG for subject matter: while all the violence occurs offstage, it is referenced by characters onstage. There will be some scary moments, but they're confined to lighting effects, shadows, sound and music. This is a play, not a haunted attraction. 


Adventure Theater. $27 Adult, $25 Senior, $22 Group/Military, $14 Student/Child

 CC PLAYHOUSE TO PRESENT NEW MUSICAL VERSION OF ‘SLEEPY HOLLOW!’

 

Beginning Friday, October 13, Cumberland County Playhouse presents an all-new musical   version of Sleepy Hollow by Tony Award® nominees Hunter Foster and Paul Gordon!     “We’re thrilled to give our Playhouse audiences the very first look at this exciting new show,” says Producing Director Bryce McDonald. “And it’s a perfect choice for the Halloween season.”

 

Sleepy Hollow is a bold new take on Washington Irving’s familiar story. Schoolmaster Ichabod Crane (Blake Graham, Beauty and the Beast) has left his home in Boston to teach the children of Sleepy Hollow, New York. But he soon learns that all is not what it seems in the quiet little town. People are disappearing one by one and legend has it that the victims are being taken by a Headless Horseman. The town, wary of any outsiders, becomes fearful of the books and teachings Ichabod brings to the village. And when Ichabod falls in love with Katrina Van Tassel (Harli Cooper, Beauty and the Beast), their blossoming romance ultimately leads to jealousy, mistrust, and then finally, betrayal, as we learn that some of the darkest monsters are the ones that lie within.

 

Sleepy Hollow also features Britt Hancock (Lying in State) as Brom Van Brunt, Weslie Webster (Gypsy) as Henriette Van Brunt, Jason Ross (The Odd Couple) as Baltus Van Tassel, Daniel Black (Million Dollar Quartet) as Charles Claassen, Caitlin Schaub (The Diary of Anne Frank) as Marie Claassen, Lauren Marshall (Sister Act) as Xandra Vos, Brett Mutter (Smoke on the Mountain) as Constable Vos, and Michael Ruff (Sister Act) as Ellis. Young actors David Kappel (The Addams Family) and Robert Walker (A Christmas Story) will alternate in the pivotal role of Pieter Claassen. Sleepy Hollow is directed by Playhouse New Works Director John Fionte (Golden Boy of the Blue Ridge), with music direction by Ron Murphy.

 

Originally commissioned in 2011 by the Signature Theatre in Arlington Virginia, Sleepy Hollow features a new book by Tony nominee Hunter Foster (Summer of ‘42, Jasper in Deadland) and new music and lyrics by Tony nominee Paul Gordon (Jane Eyre, Daddy Long Legs).

 

Sleepy Hollow runs through November 11, is rated PG, and is sponsored Uplands Village.
