How to Build a Resume That Stands Out Visually To Help Your Teen Land Their First Job

The Headless Horseman Rides into Town with Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers

Families will Laugh their Heads off at Center for Puppetry Arts with this Comedic Version of the Classic Tale

WHAT:     The Headless Horseman of Sleepy Silly Hollow by Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers of Bar Harbor, ME

An audience favorite, the sibling trio, known as the Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers, brings their unique brand of hip humor to the famous Washington Irving short story. In this comedic adaptation, schoolteacher Ichabod Crane helps the hapless Headless Horseman find a new head and a spookier image. With clever music and quirky characters, adults are sure to enjoy this “spooktacular” performance just as much as their children.


This show was positively fun and lively. The toddlers, kids, moms, dads & grandparents all seemed to get a kick out of the unique take on the classic tale.” – Review from
