William Benton Museum of Art
2:00 pm – 3:00 pm ‘The Legend of Sleepy Hollow’ by Stevens Puppets
In this silly and non-scary version of Washington Irving’s classic story, children of all ages follow the lanky schoolmaster Ichabod Crane as he sings, dances, and falls in love with the giggly Katrina Van Tassel. Audiences will watch breathlessly as Katrina’s father Baltus and the village goofball 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. The entire production is underscored by classical music, and a fun time will be had by all!  Tickets can be purchased in advance at the Ballard Institute and Museum of Puppetry, by phone at 860.486.8580, or online at http://bimp.ticketleap.com/.  There is a $2 discount for Family Weekend if you enter the discount code ‘FamilyWeekend2016’.
