PORTALES—The Department of Theatre and Dance at Eastern New Mexico University in Portales will present "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” directed by ENMU professor Janice Scarbrough, on Thursday-Saturday, Oct. 25–27.

“The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” is the classic tale of the eccentric Ichabod Crane who comes to a small New England town. He competes with the town rowdy, Brom Bones, for the affections of the lovely Katrina Van Tassel, daughter of a wealthy farmer. On his way home from the Halloween frolic, Ichabod is chased by the Headless Horseman who the townfolk say is a mythical soldier from a revolutionary war battle. Or is it Brom and his cronies playing a trick on Ichabod? Come see the show and decide for yourself.
The play features Robert Tucker from Los Alamos as Ichabod Crane, Kimberly Clements from Los Lunas as Katrina Van Tassel, Charles Britton from Portales as Brom Bones, David Wilmon from Clovis as Washington, Travis Whelpley from Hobbs, Sean Davis from Clovis as Peter, Marissa Gonzales from Albuquerque as Emily, Lavonda Franco from Carlsbad as Charlotte, Diana Brazil from Tatum as Judith, Charlotte Quintana from Albuquerque as Liddy, Dawn Zumwalt from Moriarty as Olivia, Michelle Smith from Taos as Wallis, Lucas Buie from Portales as Tobias and Moira Buie from Portales as Rachel.
