Actor Malcolm McDowell hosts Every Now and Then Theatre's three time
international award winning radio production of "Sleepy Hollow- The Lost
Diaries," on TOTV channel 10, Saturday October 31st 2009 at 9am, 4pm and
10pm. Originally broadcast in 2007, Time-Warner's production staff assembled
appropriate visuals to go along with the hour long drama about schoolmaster
Ichabod Crane's infamous Halloween encounter with a headless horseman.
"Our story begins from the viewpoint of a present day researcher discovering villagers' diaries, purporting to tell the real story," said theatre troupe founder James Wortman of Ventura. "We hear the villagers begin their diary entries, then find ourselves among them. The drama features a countywide cast of top local actors that were challenged to perform with only one rehearsal," said co-director Linda Stiegler of Thousand Oaks. "As host, Malcolm McDowell introduces the show, reveals the cast, and at the breaks, relates historical background about Halloween, the real Sleepy Hollow, and writer Washington Irving."
The cast showcases Alex Mastrovito from Camarillo, Arryck Adams from Newbury Park, Bob Decker from Camarillo, Brittany Schaver from Newbury Park, David Newcomer from Simi Valley, Deidre Parmenter from Newbury Park, Elaine Fleisher from Camarillo, James Wortman from Ventura, Jeff Schaver from Newbury Park, Jim Barker from Ventura, Jim Diderrich from Simi Valley, Linda Schaver from Newbury Park, Linda M.
