Film: The Legend of Sleepy Hollow with Jonathan Kruk
On Friday, November 3rd at 7 pm, Tompkins Corners Cultural Center proudly presents a Special Preview of the film, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, with Master Storyteller Jonathan Kruk in a rousing spirited solo performance.

Kruk enlivens Washington Irvings classic gothic tale with sartorial splendor, and his poetic persona beguiles the audience with a myriad of visages, voices, sounds and gestures.  Andrea Sadler produced and directed, and Jim Keyes, the musical director who accompanies Jonathans shows at the Old Dutch Church on its replica 17th-century pipe organ, scored the film.

Written in 1819, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow made Irving famous and continues to captivate audiences today.  This horror-romance tells of a Yankee schoolmaster infatuated with a Dutch heiress, chased off by a goblin known as the Headless Horseman.  True to the authors original tale, the performance delivers drama, mystery and wit.

The author of Legends and Lore of Sleepy Hollow and the Hudson Valley, Jonathan is renowned for dramatically retelling The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, countless times since 1996, selling out every October weekend for Historic Hudson Valley with his annual signature show. Kruk is also acclaimed for his solo show of A Christmas Carol.  With more than 500 shows a year, he regales all with programs such as Medieval Manors & Manners, Finger Fables, Mythology, Story Theater, Shakespeare is Elementary and Hudson River Lore to schools, libraries, historic sites and festivals. Jonathan Kruk has been featured on ABC Good Morning America, CBS Sunday Morning News and History Channel. He has previously appeared at Tompkins Corners in both The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and A Christmas Carol.

Filmed in Sleepy Hollows 1685 Old Dutch Church, the actual setting of Irvings Legend, this iconic church is the oldest religious building in New York and one of the longest continuously active congregations in North America.  Nestled between the Sleepy Hollow cemetery, where Washington Irving rests, and the bridge of the Headless Horsemans ride, the location provides a palpable ghostly presence.

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow will be the first film to be shown at Tompkins Corners since the organization was awarded funding by the Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley to purchase a new screen and projector. The evenings program is made possible, in part, through the Putnam Arts Councils Arts Link Program, with public funds provided through the NY State Council on the Arts with support from Governor Andrew Cuomo and the NY State Legislature and with funds from Putnam County.
