ATLANTA (October 16, 2019) – Families are invited to revel in not-so-frightful fun when Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers bring their production The Headless Horseman of Silly Hollow to the Center for Puppetry Arts, October 22-November 3. The comedic version of the famous Washington Irving short story shares the narrative of Schoolteacher Ichabod Crane helping the Headless Horseman find a new head and an even spookier image. With clever music and quirky characters, adults are sure to enjoy this “spooktacular” performance just as much as their children. 

The production features hand-and-rod as well as shadow puppets, and is recommended for ages 4 and up.
