A Look Back at Fall 2012

On October 12, 2012, the Yoh Theatre Players performed Washington Irving’s “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.” The story is set in circa 1790 in the Dutch settlement of Tarry Town (based on Tarrytown, New York), in a secluded glen called Sleepy Hollow.

It tells the story of Ichabod Crane-played by Grier Eagan, who is a lean, lanky and extremely superstitious schoolmaster from Connecticut, who competes with Abraham "Brom Bones" Van Brunt-played by Adian Ellis, the town rowdy, for the hand of 18-year-old Katrina Van Tassel-played by Kachine Sciable, the daughter and sole child of a wealthy farmer, Baltus Van Tassel.

As Crane leaves a party he attended at the Van Tassel home on an autumn night, the Headless Horseman pursues him; Ichabod mysteriously disappears from town later that evening.
