(11/1) Despite his fear of ghosts and goblins…Ichabod came upon another creature that struck sheer terror in his heart. That was… a woman – Katrina Van Tassel!!  Katrina was a blooming lass of fresh eighteen. Plump as a partridge…Ripe and melting and rosy-cheeked as one of her father’s peaches. She wore a provokingly short petticoat to display the prettiest foot and ankle in the country round. Moreover, she was the daughter and the only child of a very wealthy Dutch farmer. The Altoona Area Junior High School Drama Club is proud to present the spooky classic – The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Written by Washington Irving and adapted by Kathryn Shultz Miller, Sleepy Hollow is loaded with all the thrills, chills and laughs to keep you on the edge of your seats. Performances are scheduled for 7 p.m. on both Thursday, November 3, 2022 and Friday, November 4, 2022 with a matinee show at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, November 5, 2022.  All performances will take place in the Altoona Area Junior High School Auditorium. General admission tickets will only be on sale at the door and will cost $8 for adults and $5 for students. Doors open approximately 1/2 hour before each show. Love is in the air and Katrina’s hand in marriage is the prize!  Who will Katrina find love with?  The awkward and endearing schoolmaster, Ichabod Crane, or the brutish and brash bully, Brom Bones??  You will just have to come to the show to find out!!  We hope to see you there!
