This year’s fall play The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, set for the end of this month, is perfectly timed to coincide with Halloween. Tickets are available in the main office, the cafeteria, or Students and senior citizens pay eight dollars and adults pay 10 dollars. Show dates are October 23, 24, 29 and 30 at 7 p.m. in the AHS auditorium.

Washington Irving’s spooky tale follows schoolteacher Ichabod Crane, played by senior Dylan Genouw, as he comes to Sleepy Hollow and charms the 18-year old Katrina Van Tassel, played by junior Sarah Brady. The next day, Ichabod mysteriously disappears, and the legend is born.

“I think we all came together to put on a really good show. Even though the script was originally not as interesting, we made it really good and it’s really funny,” said senior Dylan Genouw.

Other featured roles include Hans and Dame Van Ripper, played by senior Ivan Martinez and junior Maria Garcia Reyna; Baltus Van Tassel, played by junior Kyle Mason; Grandmother, played by junior Abby Richburg, and Peter Vedder, played by sophomore Miles Houser.

“I was a little worried this year, considering we lost a lot of our senior talent, but I think we really stepped up and everyone is doing their part,” said junior Adam Garfinkle.
