Legend coming to Staunton

Item by Chris Graham

Mark your calendars – The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is coming to Staunton for one day only in October.
Golden Duck Productions is offering the presentation of the fall classic on Oct. 20 at the Dixie Theater in Downtown Staunton.
The production – presented by the Staunton Performing Arts Center – will be a musical adaptation of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.
Staunton Performing Arts Center director Ann Rogan hopes the show will give the Staunton-Augusta community a glimpse into what possibilities will be for the center.
“Live theatre for families is a rare opportunity, and with Golden Duck’s great reputation for high quality performances, we are so excited to bring this to the Dixie Theater,” Rogan said.
Showtimes on Oct. 20 are 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.
Tickets can be purchased at the door for $6 for an individual and $20 for families of four or more.
For more information, call 540.885.3211.

Augusta Free Press content is available for free, as it has been since 2002, save for a disastrous one-month experiment at putting some content behind a pay wall back in 2009. (We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!) That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year. (Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.) AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue? From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading. Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
