Get ready for a good 'ol fashioned ghost story, steeped in the history and culture of upstate NY! Adapted from Washington Irving's beloved stories, "Rip Van Winkle" and "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," Tales From Sleepy Hollow brings both these classics to life like you've never seen them before!
 
Rip van Winkle is a man who "never stands when he can lean, never leans when he can sit, never sits when he can fall asleep, and would sooner die than do a good day’s work," much to the dismay of his long-suffering wife. So when a mysterious stranger invites him out for a wild night in the Catskills, he leaps at the opportunity for a little rest and relaxation. Little does he know he's in for a little more rest than he bargained for...
 
Ichabod Crane always has an angle. Wherever there's money to be swindled, food to be seized, and beautiful women to con, that's where you'll find him. Unfortunately for him, he finds all three in Sleepy Hollow, which is also where a certain headless spectre makes his home…
 
Come see both stories mingle and overlap in surprising ways in this original script by Marty Egan and Stephen Henel, offering both comedy and spookiness in a show that's sure to entertain the whole family!
