Woodinville High School Theatre Company Presents The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
This October, the Woodinville High School Theatre Company will start the 2023-24 season by bringing Washington Irving’s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow to the WHS Theater stage. This dynamic ensemble-based retelling of the famous short story is a spooktacular, crowd-pleasing theatrical event, is perfect for the Halloween season. It’s the details that make any story convincing, and this theatrical retelling of the Great American horror story - written and adapted by Josh Butchart - is sure to get everyone into a spectral spirit. Don’t miss it!
In the quaint village of Sleepy Hollow, stories of wonder and strangeness abound, including the legend of a mighty headless Hessian. When the humble schoolteacher Ichabod Crane vies for the hand of the beautiful Katrina Van Tassel, the town’s eligible bachelor might protest, but it is ultimately the Horseman who will decide Ichabod's fate.
This new version of the Legend of Sleepy Hollow has been workshopped and adapted by the members of the Woodinville Theatre Company, crafting a world-premier production just in time for Halloween. The play will run October 19-21, at 7:00 pm, plus a matinee on October 21 at 2:00 pm in the Woodinville High School Theater. Tickets are $15 for General Admission or $10 for students (with ASB) or seniors (65+) and can be purchased online at www.whstc.org/tickets or at the WHS office. This show is recommended for audiences over 10 years old.
The cast of this production is comprised of 25 Woodinville High School Theatre Company students, including seniors Dylan Bussell, Isabelle Cobbley, Kira Gillespie, Gabriella Lutz, Carmela Martinez, Sarah Nitsche, Dani Petersen, Nate Roemer, Luca South-Ciero and William Whittington.
