Opera House Arts plans to welcome the Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers to perform “The Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow” at 7 p.m. Saturday, April 23, to the Stonington Opera House, 1 School St.

In this comedic version of the classic Washington Irving tale, school teacher Ichabod Crane helps the Headless Horseman find a new head and a spookier image. Meanwhile, a jealous Brom Bones tries to run Ichabod out of town as they both vie for the affection of Katrina Van Tassel. The Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow features 20 hand-crafted, mouth and rod puppets, and some shadow puppetry. The length of the show is approximately 50 minutes and is recommended for audiences ages 4 and up.

Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers is a puppetry troupe based in Bar Harbor and comprised of three siblings — brothers Erik and Brian Torbeck and sister Robin (Torbeck) Erlandsen.

Live performances are always free to Hancock County students in grades K-12. Proof of vaccination is required for patrons over 12.
