Sleepy Hollow’s Still Legendary for Kids

Does anybody name their kid "Ichabod" anymore?

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow rides through town just in time for Halloween, with Family Day performances at Birmingham Children’s Theater on October 29 & 30 at 2 p.m.

This is an easy pick for family edutainment that is reasonably priced. The story has remained popular ever since Washington Irving* wrote it almost 200 years ago, and chances are good that  the tale will be assigned reading. Why not let it come alive before your eyes?

This is a great opportunity to introduce the kids to live theater (the production is perfect for kids – a thrilling tale, but one that doesn’t cross into sleep-with-the-lights-on scary).  Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for children, and you can extend the theatrical fun by wearing your costumes for a contest by sponsored by al.com, with prizes to be awarded.

While you’ve got the kids out in costume, have your picture taken prior to the show, sponsored by  BirminghamMom.com. (Hey, we understand the need amortize those costumes every way possible, and to let the kids wear them enough to finally be willing to take them off in time for Christmas eve.)

Tickets may be purchased online at www.bct123.org or via telephone at 205-458-8181.  Also, check out this great deal for 50% off tickets at Swoup.com.  Wow – a family of four can attend for just $18.

Note to sleep-deprived moms: You know it’s bad when you aren’t thinking about the legendary Headless Horseman so much as fantasizing about an afternoon to yourself in any place called “Sleepy Hollow.”

*According to Wikipedia, Washington Irving wrote Legend of Sleepy Hollow while living in Birmingham, England. How’s that for a connection?
