Ensemble Stage Features “Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow” Among Many Others in Fall Theatre Lineup

Oct. 24, 2013. After a successful opening show of “Vincent” in September, Ensemble Stage will be presenting even more fantastic shows for the community to enjoy!

“The Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow,” will help you get the spooks in just in time for Halloween. This great show will be featured on Oct. 26 at 7 p.m. An adaptation of Washington Irving’s famous short story, this production will be done in the style of 1940′s radio dramas with live sound effects.

“Our radio dramas are always really popular,” said Garry Smith of Ensemble Stage.

Following up will be “It’s a Wonderful Life,” a production that has been called America’s Christmas Carol. This fantastic favorite will be showing on Nov. 30 at 7 p.m. Also performed in the style of a radio drama, this performance is a treat for anyone looking to kick off their holiday traditions with something a little different. 

Finally, in keeping with the annual tradition, “Christmas in Blowing Rock,” will be presented in a “best of” edition with favorites from past shows. This show will run Dec. 13 and 14 at 7 p.m. and Dec. 15 at 3 p.m. This performance is modeled after TV specials of the 70s complete with song and dance.  During this show, guests will be treated to the “greatest hits” of past “Christmas in Blowing Rock” productions .
