The Tollivers and the Calhouns are always fussin’ ’an’ a-feudin’, which makes things difficult for Emmy Lou, a Tolliver, and Lee Roy, a Calhoun.  The story of the 200-year old battle even appears in a scandal sheet ’Strange But True.’ A couple of near-bankrupt New York publishing houses send agents to sign up the conflicting families.  It ain’t easy having to go to the town of Lonesome Polecat.

Everyone’s favorite knothead gets an extreme makeover in this hip and hilarious musical adaptation of the classic tale of a talking puppet who gets into all kinds of trouble before learning what it truly means to be human.  Especially adapted for teens, this adaptation puts a fresh and contemporary spin on the scenes and characters from the original classic with lots of slapstick humor, clever wordplay, and a wide range of musical styles including hip-hop, gypsy swing, bluegrass, and good ol’ rock ’n’ roll!

Early on a September morning the villagers of Sleepy Hollow await their new schoolmaster. When Ichabod finally arrives, his priggish correctness casts a pall over the gossipy, prank-playing townsfolk. Soon enough, though, his genteel manners and his hymn singing impress the ladies, including Katrina Van Tassel, the town belle.
