ABOUT THE PLAYS:

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

In the quaint village of Sleepy Hollow, stories of wonder and strangeness surround the legend of a mighty headless Hessian. When the humble schoolteacher Ichabod Crane vies for the hand of the beautiful Katrina Van Tassel, the townsfolk might protest, but it is ultimately the Horseman who will decide Ichabod’s fate. This dynamic ensemble-based retelling of the famous Washington Irving short story promises to be a spooktacular, crowd-pleasing theatrical event.

The cast is comprised of 10-12 individuals of any gender or identity to create the many colorful inhabitants of Sleepy Hollow. There will be some singing and dancing required for most characters.

Afflicted: Daughters of Salem

In 1691 Puritan New England, fear and superstition were rampant. Singing, dancing, and amusement of any kind were forbidden. The devil was everywhere. Five girls coming of age in Salem Village find an ally in enslaved Tituba. Deep in the woods the girls make a pact and build a sisterhood. Alliances are formed, promises made and broken, and power taken. Afflicted: Daughters of Salem tells the story of the Salem accusers and the events that led up to the infamous Salem witch trials. This origin story examines how these teenage girls became accusers and caused 20 people to be put to death for witching.
