Synopsis

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is an adaption of Washington Irving's exciting tale about Ichabod Crane, Sleepy Hollow's new schoolmaster. Ichabod is looking for a good life and a wealthy wife to supply it. Once he sets his eyes on the local beauty, Katrina Van Tassel, he's dure his dream to marry her will come true.  Brom Bones, a local lad, and the legendary Headless Horseman are intent on changing Ichabod's plans!

We're also hosting a pre-show Haunted Path event prior to each performance.  Audience members will have the choice of entering the auditorium in an alternate dorrway by donating a canned good or giving a dollar donation.  As they walk the haunted path to Sleepy Hollow, they are sure to meet some spooky spirits, spectors or phantoms.  This Westerville North Theatre Department fundraiser will benefit a local food bank in the area (WARM) to support the International Thespian Society's TRICK OR TREAT SO KIDS CAN EAT campaign.  The Westerville North Theatre Department wanted to support this very cause as 'hunger is a very scary thing.' For those who choose to walk the path into the auditorium, we thank you for helping us fight hunger in our community. The Haunted Path is open from 6:30 - 7:00 p.m. each night of the show!
