A headless horseman may be found at 5482 Manchester Highway as Warren Arts presents “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.” 

Gregg Garrison directs the classic tale of Ichabod Crane and the Headless Horseman and said, “The event will be brought to life on stage with an amazing set, incredible costumes with a slight steampunk twist, lights, and dramatic sound effects. The play will transport you to the superstitious village of Sleepy Hollow located just outside Tarrytown, N.Y. in the 1790s.”

Carter Cantrell narrates the play as Kaden Hobbs brings the character of Ichabod Crane to life. The superstitious Ichabod is schoolmaster and jack-of-all-trades in the small town that is reportedly haunted by spooks and ghouls.

Crane’s life forever changes when he encounters a rider that appears to be a Headless Horseman on his ride home one dark night. To find out what happens to Ichabod, be sure to catch “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.”

A cast of 25 supports the ghostly tale.

Opening night is Friday, Oct. 22 at 7 p.m. Additional opportunities to catch the show include Saturday, Oct. 23 at 7 p.m., and a Sunday matinee is set for Oct. 24 at 2 p.m. 

The show will also run the following weekend on Friday night Oct. 29 at 7 p.m. An especially eerie midnight showing is planned for Oct. 30 at 11:59 p.m. The final opportunity to view the ghostly tale is set for Halloween, Oct. 31 at 2 p.m.

Garrison also wants to invite the public to a special free event which will feature fall favorites called Sleepy Holloween this Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m. at Warren Arts.

Said Garrison, “It will include craft fair booths, storytelling and Halloween skits on our outer stage, costume contests, sack races, corn husk and ragdoll making, pumpkin decorating, a mule-driven haunted hayride, face painting and more.”

To purchase tickets, or for more information, visit warrenartstn.com or on Facebook at Warren Arts. Director Greg Garrison, the entire cast, and stage crew invite you to come out and attend one of these shows. They say it’s a perfect way to set the tone for the Halloween season.
