Last night was the opening night of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. It was fantastic!
Sleepy yet spirited, haunting and haunted: To neighboring villages, the secluded glen known as Sleepy Hollow is just that -- a lovely, dreamy, bucolic home to congenial people. The residents know it to be bewitched. And when Connecticut schoolmaster Ichabod Crane arrives, terror sets in as he navigates the neighborhood, romances the Mayor’s daughter, and eventually comes head to shoulders with the Headless Horseman. Tempered by a bit of humor as Ichabod vies with village swain Brom for the fair Katrina, expect a creeping sense of Halloween-appropriate horrors to strew his path.
Each year, the Winnipesaukee Playhouse Education Department produces four plays and musicals, a full season of Integrated-Arts Summer Camp, an intensive for high school students, and a series of other events. The Education Department teaches theatrical skills and seeks to inspire its students to use theatre as a tool to develop empathy with which they may come to explore and better understand the world. Firmly believing that finances shouldn't be a barrier to students accessing quality arts education, the Playhouse provides financial aid to families who would otherwise not be able to participate.
