Legend of Sleepy Hollow
Based on the classic story by Washington Irving with music and lyrics by Paul Deiss, two performances of “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” will take place at 4:30 and 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 1, on the Oconomowoc Arts Center’s Main Stage.
This classic American tale tells the story of Tarry Town, a place where strange things happen and the townsfolk seem entranced by spirits. The production is appropriate for all ages and will be brought to life by the Virginia Rep’s Children’s Theatre’s On Tour troupe. True to the original story, Ichabod Crane, Brom Bones, the lovely Katrina Van Tassel and the chilling Headless Horseman will enlighten the audience with musical duets and solos, dancing, authentic costuming and a set with extraordinary lighting techniques and props.
Reserved seating tickets are $15 for adults, seniors (60+) and college students, and $10 for high school students and younger and military personnel (with ID). The OAC box office is open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Mondays, noon to 5 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays, 4 to 7 p.m. Thursdays and 90 minutes prior to events.

Lake Country Playhouse presents “Young Frankenstein the Musical” Oct. 13-30. Thursday, Friday and Saturday shows are at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. A matinee has also been added for Saturday, Oct. 29.
Music and lyrics by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan and directed and choreographed by Ami Majeski. “Young Frankenstein the Musical” has all the panache of the well-known 1974 screen sensation with a little extra theatrical flair added. Most appropriate for ages 11 and older.
Grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, Frederick Frankenstein ("Fronk-en-steen") inherits his family's estate in Transylvania. With the help of hunchbacked sidekick Igor and leggy lab assistant Inga, Frederick brings to life a creature to rival his grandfather's. Eventually, of course, the monster escapes and hilarity continuously abounds.
