SLEEPY HOLLOW

Based on the novel by Washington Irving

Directed by Margaret E. Hall

First Rehearsal: September 26, 2024

First Performance: October 15, 2024

Closing Performance: November 2, 2024

SYNOPSIS: It’s a dark and stormy night and the bridge to the recording studio has washed out, leaving the towns ‘magical’ baker, Jasmine Vander Hooven alone to perform a podcast of the classic ghost story The Legend of Sleepy Hollow with two local yokels – the Knickerbocker Brothers. The trio reenacts Irving’s spooky tale with devastatingly funny – and spooky – results! With live Foley sound effects and music, Irving’s tale gets a contemporary treatment that honors the original and is sure to inspire and delight young audiences.

All should be versatile, physically agile, quick study actors. This is not a musical, but all actors involved in the production need to move well.

SEEKING:

Wilbur Knickerbocker: Male presenting, Open Ethnicity: Wilbur Knickerbocker – 20s-30s; A tall and somewhat gangly man; he is the anxiety ridden brother who follows his brother Webster’s demands, mostly. Wilbur will play Ichabod Crane, the gangly teacher come to Sleepy Hollow and whose main delight in life is food, and the company of the ladies of the town. Also doubles as several other characters, male and female, within the story. Able to play guitar, and either the banjo or violin – one who plays all three a major plus.

Webster Knickerbocker: Male presenting, Open Ethnicity: Webster Knickerbocker – 20s-30s; A handsome and burly man; he is the somewhat overbearing brother “in charge” who will play Brom Bones, he is the macho would be hero of his small town. Also doubles as several other characters, male and female, within the story. Able to play piano, and guitar/violin skills are a plus.

Jasmine Vander Hooven: Female presenting, Open Ethnicity: Jasmine Vander Hooven – 20s-30s; she’s very pretty, runs the bakery in town, and her treats are ‘magical.’ She arrives just in time to help the brothers put on their podcast, doubles as Katrina Van Tassel, as well as several other characters, male and female, within the story. She is very fun, full of energy and even seems to have some actual magical powers. Guitar, ukulele, violin, piano skills a plus.
