Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers: The Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow

Saturday, October 14, 2023 @ 11:00 am 12:00 pm

The Camden Public Library welcomes back Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers for a fun and spooky performance of The Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow on Saturday, October 14 at 11:00 a.m.!

In this comedic version of the classic Washington Irving tale, schoolteacher Ichabod Crane helps the Headless Horseman find a new head and a spookier image.  Meanwhile, a jealous Brom Bones tries to run Ichabod out of town as they both vie for the affection of Katrina Van Tassel.  

The show features 20 hand-crafted mouth and rod puppets, and some shadow puppetry. 

Length of show: approx. 50 minutes
Recommended audience: ages 4 and up
