The Headless Horseman rides in Camden
Camden — The Frogtown Mountain Puppet Theater will perform “The Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow” featuring the headless horseman, Brom Bones, Ichabod Crane and the lovely Katrina Friday, Oct. 12 at 6:30 p.m. in the upstairs Reading Room of the Camden Public Library. This is a free event for all ages.
“The Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow” is a comedic version of the classic Washington Irving tale “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.” Based loosely on the original story, this telling involves a bumbling Headless Horseman, his wisecracking horse, the meat-head Brom Bones, the lovely Katrina Van Tassel, her ostentatiously rich father and the mild-mannered and lovable protagonist, Ichabod Crane. Ichabod befriends the hapless, headless ghoul, and advises him in the search for a suitable replacement head. Meanwhile, a jealous Brom Bones tries to run Ichabod out of town while they both vie for the affections of Katrina.
Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers is a small puppetry troupe based in Bar Harbor comprised of three siblings — Erik, Brian, and Robin Torbeck. Founded in 2000, Frogtown Mountain has performed at fairs, festivals, theaters, parades, schools, libraries and some of the finest petting zoos on the East Coast.
