The Mary H. Weir Public Library will host Dan Raynor of the critically acclaimed Stevens Puppets performing The Legend of Sleepy Hollow on Saturday, October 5th at 1:00 p.m. in the library’s Activity Room. Celebrating their 80th year of producing unforgettable and one of a kind marionette productions for children of all ages, Stevens Puppets specializes in classic children's literature and fairy tales. The programs are intended for all age levels. The stories are educational and have a moral or life skill woven cleverly and discretely throughout.
In this silly and non-scary version of Washington Irving's The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, children of all ages will follow the lanky school master, Ichabod Crane, as he sings, dances, and falls in love with a giggly, Katrina Van Tassel. Students will watch breathless as Katrina's father, Baltus, and the village goof ball, Brom Bones, try to run Ichabod out of town by telling him the tale of . . . The Headless Horseman. The Stevens Puppets bring this ever-popular classic tale delightfully to life with beautiful wooden marionettes authentically created in the traditional old world style. The entire production is underscored by classical music, and a fun time is had by all!
This program will be presented free of charge. For further information, call the library at 304-797-8510.
