Gull Lake’s Performing Arts Company (PAC) will be showing their first performance of “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” at Gull Lake High School, November 9 from 7 to 9 p.m. Admission is $5, paid at the door. The performance will take place in the Gull Lake High School Black Box/Drama Room.

The show should be a good opportunity to see up-and-coming talent within the Performing Arts Company.

“A lot of freshmen this year, [makes it] super exciting,” senior Mackenzie Sternburg said.

After the first performance on Friday, there will be two more opportunities on Saturday and Sunday to watch the play. On Saturday, November 10, PAC will perform at the same time and in the same location as the first show. Sunday, November 11, is the final showing, from 2 to 4 p.m. in the same location as both previous shows.

Compared to previous stories performed by PAC, Sleepy Hollow is more recognizable to the audience.

“This [performance] is different simply for the fact that it’s more of a well-known show than others that [PAC] has worked on,” Sternburg said.

Originally written by Washington Irving in 1820, the story has become a mainstay in early American folklore. The headless horseman, originally a part of European lore, is a crucial character for the story and a popular figure known to many.

Owl Eyes has a very informative article for further reading on the story’s creation, characters, and plot points.

I’m a senior at Gull Lake High School, and this is my first year on staff. I enjoy writing about our school sports’ programs and other areas as well. Having a deep interest and enjoyment in our English classes at Gull Lake, I’ve decided to pursue a different side of writing by doing newspaper and hope to provide entertaining articles for our viewers. Being involved in sports such as cross country and track, while also being invested to clubs such as Debate and Model UN, I write about topics that affect both myself and classmates.
