Street Theatre’s ClassAct Dramatics presents Ichabod: Missing in Sleepy Hollow by Jeremy Sony, October 4-12. This script was selected as the winner of the Playhouse Nashville playwright contest and will be directed by Elaina McKnight Shaver.
Ichabod: Missing in Sleepy Hollow starts right after the Washington Irving story ‘ends.’ We are first introduced to Ichabod’s classroom of students as they are telling the eerie tale of how their headmaster was spirited away by the Headless Horseman. Abigail Seymour, the new-to-town Head Mistress, overhears their ghost stories and is introduced to the obviously made up story that the students have created…or so she thinks.
Throughout the story we follow Abigail and the students on a journey through Sleepy Hollow to find out just what happened to the infamous, Ichabod Crane. Along with the characters, we learn some new revelations, gain clues on who the Headless Horseman could be and meet all the original Irving characters. This spooky tale is perfect for the whole family.
