THE NEW 2018-2019 SEASON OF ON-THE-GO! SCHOOL TOUR PROGRAMS

Sleepy Hollow
By Washington Irving
Adapted by Maggie Mancinelli-Cahill
Music & Lyrics by Justin Friello & Lecco Morris
Directed by Margaret E. Hall

Tour Dates: October 9 – November 2, 2018 
Cost: $1,000

It’s a dark and stormy night and the bridge to the recording studio has washed out, leaving Hollywood A-lister Margo Fontaine alone to perform a podcast of the classic ghost story The Legend of Sleepy Hollow with two local yokels. The trio reenacts Irving’s spooky tale with devastatingly funny—and spooky—results! With live sound effects and music, Irving’s tale gets a contemporary treatment that honors the original and is sure to inspire and delight young audiences!
