THE SLEEPY HOLLOW PROJECT
Inspired by The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving
Directed by Kristin Eveleigh
November 20-29, 2014
West Village Theatre
Whatever happened to Ichabod Crane?
You know the legend, now discover the truth.
Ten years after his mysterious disappearance, seemingly at the hands of the feared Headless Horseman, a young and idealistic New York City detective descends on the town of Sleepy Hollow to find the truth. What he finds is a community in shambles, where rumours and insidious theories run wild, and a formidable yet unseen force committed to keeping the secret of Ichabod Crane buried forever. Join us on the adventure this November, but be warned, the journey to Sleepy Hollow is a dangerous one. Where the sun dies…hell is waiting.
Rehearsals begin early September 2014 and are Wednesday evenings and Saturday days at the Unitarian Church of Calgary.
This production will be scored live by the Zombie Sailor Moon Band.
THE LOST PRINCE
Written and Directed by Jamie Dunsdon
March 5-14, 2015

In a cottage in the English countryside lives a boy. Hidden away by his own family, the world has long since forgotten he exists until one day he meets a young girl, who learns the truth: he is a Prince of England… and that’s not his biggest secret.
Based on a true story.
Rehearsals for the Lost Prince will be on Tuesday evenings and Saturday days starting in December 2014 at the Unitarian Church of Calgary.
