Legend of Sleepy Hollow
As the sunsets and the darkness begins to make dreams become reality, come to Schoenbrunn Village as the lower level picnic facilities are transformed to a tired New England Village for the Legend of Sleepy Hollow. The journey to this mystic woods takes place on Friday October 21st and Saturday October 22nd.
With each step of the way, while watching over your shoulder at the noises in the woods, you will feel like you are going back in time. Let your imagination lead you as you enter the glen of Sleepy Hollow and listen as a story teller transforms the outdoors with an adapted story of Washington Irving’s classic tale. Find your seat around a bonfire, and be sure to bring the whole family. Benches, hay bales and blankets will fill the area as visitors will feel like they are part of the story as the legendary Ichabod Crane enters with a group of school students and is bedazzled by the lovely Katrina Van Tassell.
Listen as the story teller unfolds the tale with the excitement of an autumn party to include treats prepared just for the guests. Pumpkin muffins by Steineck’s Donuts & Cakes and apple cider served by the towns people will keep the evening going deeper into the Legend as Brom Bones appears at the right moment to terrify Ichabod with his tales of the Headless Horseman… but remember that some legends seem a bit more real as you check behind you.
A family friendly event, the dramatic reading will last approximately an hour long and include fall treats with the performance. Performances will begin promptly at 8:00pm on both Friday October 21st and Saturday October 22nd. The Legend will be presented by the light of a bonfire in the open air of the Schoenbrunn Village lower level picnic facilities. Groups will be escorted to the lower level and must walk a short distance; prearranged handicap accessibility will be available.
Tickets are available now at $10.00 for adults (age thirteen years and older) and $8.00 for youth (age 1 year through 12 years). Reservations are required with limited seating for each performance and rainout dates offered in case of inclement weather.
