The Waldo Theatre presents The Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers’ “The Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow” Saturday, Oct. 2 at 3 p.m. Tickets are $8, $5 for children.

“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.

The Waldo Theatre also will be welcoming the members of the Les Petits Chanteurs, a choir from Haiti. These young people are performing in this country to raise funds to rebuild their Trinity Music School which was destroyed in the earthquake. Members of the Rite-13 class of St. Andrew’s of Newcastle will be hosting a bake
sale before the show to assist the choir in rebuilding their school.

The Waldo Theatre is located on Main Street/Route 220, in the village. For reservations, write to info@thewaldo.org or call 832-6060. Group rates are available for various organizations.
