The Legend of Sleepy Hollow at Andrew Jackson State Park

Saturday, October 12, 2019 - 7:00pm until 9:00pm

Spend an evening in the amphitheater as the Community Playhouse of Lancaster County brings the 1700s to life. In the quaint village of Sleepy Hollow, stories of wonder and strangeness surround the legend of a mighty headless Hessian soldier. When the humble schoolteacher Ichabod Crane vies for the hand of the beautiful Katrina Van Tassel, the townsfolk might protest, but it is ultimately the Horseman who will decide his fate. The play is based on the classic American short story by Washington Irving. This adaptation is written by John Heimbuch and Jon Ferguson. It is presented under the direction of Joe Timmons, III. Ticket prices are asfollows: $15/Adult; $10/Students and Seniors; $5/Children (ages 5 and under).

This is an outdoor performance. No refunds will be issued.
