This October, the Carolina Ballet returns to live performance with their new Halloween tradition—The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Artistic Director Zalman Raffael brings Washington Irving’s bonechilling tale to the stage for fans both young and old. The ballet recounts Ichabod Crane, his doomed courtship with Katrina Van Tassel, and his “face-to-face” encounter with the terrifying specter that is the Headless Horseman.

Fans of the supernatural will enjoy this program of frights and delights that include Robert Weiss’ Lady in the WhiteVeil and The Raven. Spine-tingling and eerie, do not be surprised if you stumble upon an ominous ghost, a creepy blackbird or the Headless Horseman himself!

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

*Face masks, proof of full Covid-19 vaccination, or negative Covid-19 PCR test completed within 72 hours prior to event required.

An image of Paula Poundstone she is wearing a white shirt with blue and black striped overalls and a colorful tie. There is a black top hat in her left hand and her right hand is extended above her head holding a black frame.

Paula Poundstone is a comedian and author, known for her smart, observational humor and spontaneous wit. When she isn’t collecting hotel soaps on tour, Paula hosts the popular Starburns Audio podcast, Nobody Listens to Paula Poundstone. Nobody is a comedy field guide to life, complete with taste tests, cats of the weeks and leading experts in everything from high-rise window washing to urban chicken farming, copyright law, food safety and surviving a bear attack (although, that guest never made it to the studio…). All put thru the screwball sensibility of Paula Poundstone, while co-host Adam Felber tries, in vain, to keep the show on track.

Paula is included in innumerable lists, documentaries and literary compendiums noting influential standup comedians of our time. Paula’s stand-up special, Cats, Cops and Stuff was named in TIME Magazine as one of The 5 Funniest Stand-Up Specials Ever.

My prayer is this album and this tour will help people have real encounters with the God who loves us, is near to us, and heals us.”
