    Carrollton Center for the Arts’ Youth Theatre will bring Washington Irving’s gothic story, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, to the Danny Mabry Theatre stage, October 25-26, just in time for Halloween.

    “Our Junior Company, which is comprised of middle school students, is growing and not just in numbers,” said Carrollton Arts Superintendent Tim Chapman.  “These young actors have acquired skills that make them look like seasoned actors on stage. And our production this fall is full of special effects that will put you in the mood for Halloween.”

    In the play, a late-1700s school teacher named Ichabod Crane comes to Sleepy Hollow, New York, and finds himself at odds with a local named Brom Bones over a woman named Katrina. Meanwhile, the ghost of a soldier who lost his head to a cannonball during the American Revolution haunts the area every night in search of his missing head.

     “A great way to celebrate Halloween with your family,” said the show’s director, Cindi Winstead. “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is spine chilling fun. Creepy, but never gory.”

    The show is sponsored by Carroll Realty and Insurance.
