The Nashville Community High School will present a classic tale of chills and thrills with its upcoming fall play.
“The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” opens on Friday, October 19 at 7 p.m. in the NCHS Auditorium with additional performances on Saturday,, October 20 and Sunday, October 21 at 3 p.m. Admission is $5.
The story follows the American gothic tale by Washington Irving, and it is adapted by Kathryn Schultz Miller.
Set in 1790 in the countryside around a colonial Dutch settlement, “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” follows the adventures of the bumbling, awkward schoolteacher Ichabod; the coquettish Katrina; and Ichabod’s rival Brom Bones. There will be six characters who play the storytellers who help keep the action going throughout the play.
The play also includes the famous Headless Horseman, who will arrive near the end.
