A musical, discussion on poetry, crochet classes and virtual tour to a museum await the people of Pune this week
Set in England in 1820, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Helen Watts is a powerful and haunting musical about what happens when good people make bad choices. The isolated town of Sleepy Hollow is disrupted by the arrival of a new schoolteacher, Ichabod Crane, who challenges the town’s superstitions with science, reason and fact. With music and lyrics by Eamonn O’Dwyer, the recorded live production of the play has been put together by students of MA Musical Theatre and MA Stage and Production Management programmes of Guildford School of Acting at the University of Surrey, for online viewers on August 4 at 7:30 pm and August 5 at 2:30 pm.
