Shadow Puppetry for Little Ones: Young Washington Irving in Sleepy Hollow

Young Washington Irving in Sleepy Hollow!

Before Washington Irving was an internationally renowned author, he came to Sleepy Hollow as a young man and absorbed the spine-tingling tales he would fondly recall all his life. Bring YOUR family for an afternoon they won’t soon forget!

Artist and puppeteer extraordinaire Melissa Chernowetz uses her hand-crafted shadow puppets to weave an original tale based on Irving’s real life events as he makes mischief and escapes the specter of his most famous tale – the Headless Horseman!

Suitable for ages 5 and up. Be sure to stay after the show for a behind-the-scenes look at how Melissa works her magic!
