Ocean Professional Theater Co. brings Broadway to HFNMS
Helen Fort Middle School 8th graders were treated to a live performance of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Written by Washington Irving in 1820, it is not only one of the first horror stories to be printed, but one of the earliest examples of American fiction. When Ichabod Crane comes to town to be the new schoolmaster, he quickly learns about the many ghosts who haunt the area, none more frightening than The Headless Horseman. No one dares to say the name lest he rise up to terrorize the people of Tarrytown. James Rana is the playwright who wrote the script and a crew of four and a cast of six played several roles to bring this haunting classic to life.
