Written by Ray Crew, the play is part of a three-course dinner theater program running Fridays in September at the Cold Spring Grange Restaurant, 735 Seashore Road, Cape May.

 East Lynne Theater Company's

The year is 1782, and the village of Tarrytown is surrounded by ghosts from the past – including the Headless Horseman, the ghost of a Hessian soldier who was killed during the Revolutionary War who roams the countryside at night looking for a head.

When the town’s new schoolteacher, Ichabod Crane, suddenly disappears, is the Headless Horseman to blame, or something or someone else? 

The East Lynne Theater Company will present “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” based on Washington Irving's supernatural tale, adapted by James Rana, who created last season's "The Poe Mysteries."  Like "Poe," this production, under the direction of Gayle Stahlhuth, travels up to Ocean Professional Theatre Company in Barnegat in late October.
