PUPPET SHOWS | AGES 2-12 | CENTER FOR PUPPETRY ARTS
A Halloween Classic with a Comic Twist
By Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers of Bar Harbor, ME
Schoolteacher Ichabod Crane helps the Headless Horseman find a new head and an even spookier image in this comedic version of the famous Washington Irving short story. Meanwhile, a jealous Brom Bones tries to run Ichabod out of town as they both vie for the affection of Katrina Van Tassel. In the end, the Horseman saves the day and everyone is “happy ever after!”
