Global Wholesome Network and Patricia White Debuts her new musical,

 Hearts of the Hollow, this fall in Carmel, New York’s Veterans Memorial Park

Carmel, NY – Hearts of the Hollow is an exciting, new musical inspired by Washington Irving’s renowned short story “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.”  This two-act, 20 song musical written by Patricia White brings new twists, new characters, and new music to Irving’s tale.

Opening on the battlefield of White Plains in 1776, the Horseman comes to wreak havoc on Sleepy Hollow.  That’s just the beginning of a story filled with action, intrigue, romance, folly, and mystery.

In addition to Irving’s traditional characters such as Ichabod Crane, Katrina Van Tassel, and Brom Bones, this rendition introduces many new characters, whose lives are intertwined through secrets, adventure, humor, and forgiveness, which crescendos in the timeless theme – to follow one’s heart.  

The new songs, performed by the Prague Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra, include heartwarming ballads, cheerful up-tempo numbers, and, as would be expected when the Horseman abounds–some hair-raising scores of villainy!

This special seasonal event takes place in Carmel, NY at the Putnam County Veterans Memorial Park inside the historical Whipple-Feely Chapel.  Shows run every weekend from September 9 to October 31, 2022.  Showtimes are Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 pm and Sunday matinees at 2:00 pm.  On Monday, October 31, there will be a special Halloween performance at 8 pm. Arrive in costume on Halloween to be eligible to win a prize!  

In cooperation with Putnam County Parks and Recreation, Hearts of the Hollow is presented by the Global Wholesome Network, and is underwritten by the Musicians Emergency Fund.
