Do your kids need to settle down before a sugar-infused round of trick-or-treating? Does your spooky drive down an abandoned road need a soundtrack? Do you just want to get into the Halloweekend mood?
We have the perfect audio for you: excerpts from a dramatic retelling of the classic “Legend of Sleepy Hollow” from local historic interpreter, Anne Williams.
Ichabod Crane and the headless horseman, however, are just as entertaining in the story, originally written by American author Washington Irving and first published in 1820.
You should know that Williams, of Kirkwood, recites these stories from memory. You can find her reciting stories throughout the area during the Halloween season, at Christmastime and on Independence Day.
“Cityscape” is produced by Mary Edwards, Alex Heuer, and Kelly Moffitt. The show is sponsored in part by the Missouri Arts Council, the Regional Arts Commission, and the Arts and Education Council of Greater St. Louis.
