"And I believe in the Headless Horseman
The things they say are true
If you feel his ghoulish grip
It will be the end of you!"

Icabod Crane is new to Sleepy Hollow and seems to fit right in. He's taking over the choir, courting the wealthy daughter, and sharing a ghost story or two. But not everyone is happy to see Icabod and not everyone thinks he loves ghost stories as much as he says. What happens when Icabod gets a ghoulish surprise?

This new adaptation of the Washington Irving story is excellent for large groups and suitably spooky for Halloween!
