MADCAP PUPPETS
Sunday, October 30th, 2016

3:00 p.m.


In Madcap Puppet Theatre's production Madcap's Legend of Sleepy Hollow, the lanky
schoolmaster, Ichabod Crane, can't decide what's worse in the glen of Sleepy Hollow,
the headless horseman or the silliest of ghosts, the horseless headman.
To complicate matters Ichabod unwittingly vies with the local brute, Brom Bones,
for the affections of Katrina Van Tassal. Ichabod endures a series of pranks and ghost stories,
only to find himself on the ride of his life in this hilarious version of Washington Irving's
classic short story. Based in Cincinnati, Ohio, Madcap Productions Puppet Theatre's
original children's theatre productions, as well as in-school educational programs
that include performances, workshops and residencies are nationally recognized.
Following the performance, the actors will return to the stage to answer questions
from the audience. Youngsters are invited to come in costume and
parade onstage at the end of the performance!
