Serenbe Playhouse presents ‘Sleepy Hollow Experience’

“The Sleepy Hollow Experience” opens at Serenbe Playhouse on Oct. 10, telling the chilling tale of the Headless Horseman. 


Just in time for the spookiest time of year, Serenbe Playhouse will be presenting “The Sleepy Hollow Experience” beginning Oct. 10.

Adapted from the classic Washington Irving American folk tale, this cross between theatrical production and interactive haunted house will take place in the majestic Serenbe Stables. The performance promises chills, thrills and a few laughs, intertwined in an evening of frightening entertainment that will make you want to leave the lights on at night, and checking every corner for the dreaded Headless Horseman.

Director Brian Clowdus, executive and founding artistic director of Serenbe Playhouse, is hot off the heels of the Playhouse’s most successful summer season to date.

“Record-breaking attendance,” “ A driving dedication to performance — rain or shine,” “A group that is breaking down new artistic boundaries,” and “Punctuated some of Atlanta's most critically acclaimed productions in recent history,” theatre representatives said. “The Sleepy Hollow Experience is in line to become the talk of the Atlanta theatre scene this autumn, with the highest percentage of ticket presales in the history of Serenbe Playhouse.”

"We are using the success of our summer to propel us into our first full-fledged fall production: The Sleepy Hollow Experience,” says Clowdus. “We are using the classic story but breathing new life or, shall we say, death, into our concept. Be prepared to be scared beyond belief, as you find yourself feeling trapped at times and constantly looking over your shoulder to see the Woman in White or the Headless Horseman breathing down your neck and gone the next minute. It will truly be an experience and journey you will not forget."

For those looking for an extra dose of fright and fun, a special Halloween Monster Mash party will take place on Halloween night, Oct. 31, immediately following the performance of “The Sleepy Hollow Experience.” Attendees can expect a bonfire, costume contest, tricks and treats, music and dancing, specialty cocktails and a chance to mingle with the cast and creative team of the production. Additionally, Serenbe Playhouse will be announcing its 5th season of shows, slated to begin in 2014. This Halloween night special event is strictly for those 21 and older, they said.

Show dates and times for “The Sleepy Hollow Experience” are Oct. 10-31, every Thursday through Sunday evening at 8 p.m. All tickets are $20, with tickets for the Halloween Monster Mash being $50 (which includes admission to the production that evening). Guests wishing to attend only the Monster Mash party can purchase tickets for $40, with an event start time of 9:30 p.m.
