ANNAPOLIS, Md. (July 2016)- Experience the dramatic, electrifying antics of the
Headless Horseman and other mesmerizing spooky creatures as they leap from
the page to the stage at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts (MDH) when the Ballet Theatre of Maryland (BTM) open its 2016-2017 Season Washington Irving’s beloved ghost story: The Legend of Sleepy Hollow on October 21, 22, and 23.

Everyone loves a ghostly, spooky tale about things that go bump in the night—especially when the tale is full of good humor and beloved characters. The comedic, lanky school teacher, Ichabod Crane, pits himself against the athletic “jock”, Brom Bones as they vie for the attention of the lovely, mysterious Katrina Van Tassel. And of course, the spooky specter at the bottom of all the strange happenings is the Headless Horseman himself who will make a guest appearance onstage at MDH.

You will be mesmerized by BTM’s masterful retelling of Irving’s comedic masterpiece. Thrilling special effects combine with dazzling, energetic dancing set against the backdrop of the darkly, brooding Sleepy Hollow forest. You will be thrilled by the energetic, charismatic dancing of Brom Bones, danced by Alexander Collen, and his gang of ruffians. Enjoy the humorous, witty antics of Ichabod Crane, danced by Alden and Calder Taylor, as he faces off against Brom Bones to win the heart of the Katrina Van Tassel starring Lynne Bellinger and Sarah Gilliam. And discover the fate of Crane when he finally meets his nemesis, alone, in the shadows of the forest that fatal All Hallows midnight

And join in on the fun at our Halloween Spooktacular Party at 1:00 p.m. Sunday, October 23, where you can interact with the dancer’s and characters from Sleepy Hollow, play games, and experience fantastic tricks and treats. Come dressed in your spookiest, favorite costumes or come as you are. Everything is included with the price of your Sunday Matinee ticket.
