Spotlight Players bring to life Washington Irving’s classic tale for the stage! When Ichabod Crane meanders into the town of Sleepy Hollow to take up the position of the village schoolmaster, he does not know that he will be vying for the hand of the lovely Katrina Van Tassel. Nor could he foresee the ghoul that will hunt him for his head. Hilarity ensues as the citizens of Sleepy Hollow become more and more fascinated with the mysterious but charming schoolmaster. Yet do not be fooled by the quaint nature of Sleepy Hollow, for when the sun goes down, no one is safe from the Headless Horseman!
Other details you need to know about these auditions:
The role of the Headless Horseman will likely be doubled up with the actor playing John or Maurice. Some experience in stage combat with a sword is preferable but not a requirement.

Following that they will be held Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday for the remaining six weeks (August 9-September 15). Rehearsals will be at Christ Episcopal Church as well as the Puyallup Nissan dealership on Valley Ave. Tech week will be September 17-20 at Meridian Habitat Park.
