SYNOPSIS:

BASED ON THE WASHINGTON IRVING CLASSIC
BOOK BY VERA MORRIS
MUSIC AND LYRICS BY BILL FRANCOEUR
Listen to the songs HERE
Here’s a show alive with action, excitement, and dynamic music.  When an inane schoolmaster, Ichabod Crane, comes to the farming community of Sleepy Hollow, he brings with him all his worldly possessions as he seeks a well-to-do wife.  He’s sure his dream will come true when he spots the striking Katrina Van Tassel.  Sadly for poor Ichabod, the boisterous Brom Bones is Katrina’s extremely jealous boyfriend.  Matters are complicated even more as the ghostly graveyard is haunted by a host of tense spirits, including the Headless Horseman, the most renowned phantom of all.  When Ichabod proposes marriage to Katrina at a party, he is kicked out by Brom, forcing him to make his way through the graveyard during a raging storm.  In the dark, we sense there’s something overshadowing poor Ichabod, aiming to take the poor soul’s life!  This suspenseful musical is filled with a variety of songs that fit the bill:  ’A Superstitious Yankee Folk,’ ’Ghost in the Graveyard,’ and of course, ’The Headless Horseman.’

  • You do not need to make an audition appointment, simply show up. We see people in the order they arrive and complete paperwork. To print and fill out the audition form ahead of time please click here: Audition Form 2018-19 – Youth
  • IMPORTANT: If you audition for our production and are cast it is expected you will follow through and do our production; failure to do so may prevent you from being cast in a future show as you will have possibly taken a spot from someone who was not cast. If you are auditioning ONLY for specific roles you may specify that on the audition form and you will only be considered for those roles. If you do not specify we will assume you will accept ANY role offered.
  • There is a $125 production fee associated with this production (if you need financial assistance please fill out our Majestic Theatre Scholarship App Form 18 – this should be done immediately AFTER casting as needing scholarship assistance is NOT a factor in casting). This includes all rehearsal materials for the show, a show t-shirt, and a professionally taken photos from the production.
  • In addition, there is a $75 “Doing Your Part” deposit that you get back once all production support items are completed. Here are the DYP requirements: Sleepy Hollow 2021 DYP

  • Audition may also consist of readings from the script (provided at audition time).
  • Masks will be required for all staff and performers for this project (auditions and rehearsals) regardless of vaccination status. We are hoping to remove masks for tech week and/or performances but that decision will not be made until we get closer to the actual show dates.
