Ichabod Crane, a lanky, lean, superstitious school master, arrives to teach the children of Sleepy Hollow. As he vies for the attention of the lovely Katrina Van Tassel, his rival for her attention is the town rowdy, Brom Bones. Brom tries to scare Ichabod away with local superstitions and ghost tales. And soon enough, the ill-fated schoolmaster encounters a terrifying legend come to life: the Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow. Meticulously adapted to stay true to the mood and flavor of the book Washington Irving is most famous for, this Colonial Radio presentation won the Charles Ogle Award for the Best Fantasy Production of 2005.
True to the Book
I love Washington Irvings writing style, it is unique an wonderful to behold. Colonial Radio has managed to produce an exquisite audio drama that stays very true to the book. There are no beheadings (like in the recent movie interpretation), and little does this great story need one. I first heard this program a number of years ago on XM radio and now I listen to this version of the story every October, you should too.
The voices are hard to hear the sound effects are so loud that you can’t hear what is being said
