The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

One of the best known tales of strange happenings, spooks and goblins is the "Legend of Sleepy Hollow," the mysterious experience of the lanky schoolmaster, Ichabod Crane. You've never seen anyone quite like him so the opening song will serve to describe his ungainly appearance to you.

While attending a Halloween Party on a dark and foreboding night Ichabod hears the story of the "Headless Horseman" told in song. The Black Rider's penchant for cutting off human heads fills Ichabod's thoughts when he leaves the party and mounts his borrowed horse for the homeward journey. Then ensues the spine-tingling chase involving Ichabod and the Headless Horseman as they race toward the bridge. To this day the villagers of Sleepy Hollow are not agreed as to the fate that befell Ichabod Crane on that long ago murky night.

Rip Van Winkle

This is an updated version of Washington Irving's well-known story of Rip Van Winkle and his long sleep. Our story tells of Rip's reactions when he awakens to find he has been peacefully napping for 200 years. In the village, before his strange story begins, Rip is a carefree, happy-go-lucky and somewhat lazy man. Rip's shrewish wife frequently nags him and he pours out his lament in the song, "A Sorry Disgrace." After encountering the strange little men in the mountains, and sampling their brow, Rip snoozes away two centuries of time. Imagine his bewilderment when he finds himself in a modern world of jet planes, space ships, automobiles, television and tall buildings. Rip is so confused he sings of his dilemma in, "What to do?"  But, as you shall hear, Rip Van Winkle adjusts very well to his life in a fast moving world.
