The Children's Theatre, Inc. is bringing the "Legend of Sleepy Hollow" to the Schwartz Center for the Arts this weekend just in time for Halloween.
The classic tale follows schoolmaster Ichabod Crane, gracefully executed by 15-year-old Dover resident Teresa Pierce, as he competes for the hand of the beautiful and young Katrina Van Tassel, brought to life by Jenna Atkinson. However, the well-known town rowdy Brom Bones, played by 17-year-old Max Harding, is also vying for Katrina's attention and plots a series of pranks on the jittery schoolmaster.
Audiences should also expect many ghostly apparitions from the phantoms of a drowning girl and an Indian chief to the woman in white and, of course, the infamous Headless Horseman.
The play is being directed by the husband-wife team of Pam and Andy Lloyd, Carol-Ann Harding and Kathy Szramka, who have pulled together more than two dozen young actors ready to bring the town and legend of Sleepy Hollow to life.
The curtains rise at 7 p.m., Saturday night and again at 2 p.m., Sunday afternoon. Tickets are $8 per child and $10 per adult. Tickets can be purchased online or in person at the box office, which is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
