The first films to incorporate sound were known as “talkies,” just as the word “walkies” was applied to the first plays not starring cardboard actors. Celebrate theatrical innovation with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $10, you get two tickets to see Legends of Sleepy Hollow, presented by Zion Theatre Company at the Castle Amphitheater (a $22 value, $18 value for seniors and students). All seating is first come, first served. Patrons should bring blankets and warm clothes. In the event of rain, the venue will have umbrellas available for an additional fee. Choose between the following shows:
- Friday, October 7 at 7:30 p.m.
- Saturday, October 8 at 7:30 p.m.
While the moon rises during a crisp autumn night over the Castle theater, audiences tense up as they watch the Headless Horsemen torment Ichabod Crane in Mahonri Stewart's adaptation of Washington Irving's classic tale. Stewart seasons the yarn's supernatural creeps and crawls with comedic moments. Designed to look like a castle courtyard, the outdoor venue transports viewers to the past, when spectral horsemen, poorly lit dirt roads, and uncontrollable pumpkin fires were commonplace. The theater company further embraces autumn by selling traditional fall goodies such as hot chocolate and caramel apples (not included with this Groupon).
