Christopher's "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" at Mill Mountain Theatre
This past summer Mill Mountain Theatre commissioned Christopher to adapt Washington Irving's classic story "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" into a one-act play for middle and high schoolers. He is over-the-moon excited, having been involved in the rehearsal process, to see it come together so well. His original show runs at Mill Mountain Theatre in Roanoke, Virginia: October 21st-28.
"It’s Halloween night and Will invites his friends up to the attic to tell spooky stories. Suddenly when the group of children find Washington Irving’s “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” in his grandfather’s old trunk, they begin acting out the story. By using things only found in an attic, this inventive and theatrical retelling of the classic story is perfect for the Halloween season. “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” published in 1820, tells the story of Ichabod Crane and his attempt to win the heart of his love, Katrina Van Tassel. This comical and ghostly tale accompanies Crane through the town of Sleepy Hollow, NY, where he is visited by a mysterious ghost, the Headless Horseman."
