Hulda's Night
The Legends of Rockefeller State Preserve

This unique theatrical experience takes the form of a guided walk through the Rockefeller State Park Preserves, through the dark woods, to hear legends and lore of the Hudson Valley, including Hulda, the Leatherman, and more. Recommended for ages 8 and up! It is not a scary event but it is at night in the woods and there will be a little bit of spookiness, as is fitting for Sleepy Hollow in October.

Casting Requirements:

 

  • Travel to Rockefeller State Park Preserve for rehearsals and performances.

  • Attendance at rehearsals.

  • Availability October 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, & 30.
